Mechanical Weed Control Farm Tour
Wednesday, June 13, 2018
9:30 a.m.-12 p.m.
Venture Heritage Farm is located in the rolling hills of northeast Ohio. A wide range of crops are grown on the farm including: edible beans, open pollinated corn, spelt, and einkorn for human consumption and hay, hybrid corn and soybeans sold as commodities to local dairy farmers. Produce and flowers are sold on the farm through a unique partnership with local businesses. The farm also serves as the primary testing site for the Steiner family's new Tilmor equipment which is designed and manufactured nearby. The farm also hosts seasonal farm-to-table meal experiences, floral arranging classes, and other community events. During this tour, Lydell Steiner will facilitate a hands-on demonstration on the variety of tools used in mechanical weed control, along with the Tilmor equipment being tested. Jon Detweiler, the farm manager, will discuss growing grains, vegetable production, and soil health and Kirsten Detweiler will share information about farm-to-table and other on-farm events.
Directions: From Rte. 30, travel 1 mile south on Kidron Rd. Turn east on Arnold Rd. Venture Heritage Farm is on the south side of the road at the back of a long lane.
