Cultivating a Farm with Friends (and No Money) Farm Tour
Sunday, August 5, 2018
Hand Hewn Farm is made up of five friends: Andy and Katie Lane, Doug and Molly Wharton, and Kathy Neal. In 2014, these friends made the decision to combine efforts and move to Andy's grandparents' family farm in Tuscarawas County. They raise pigs in the woods, and rabbits and layer and broiler chickens on pasture. A fully operational educational butcher shop adds to the vision and is where butcher workshops and other culinary classes are held.
Many aspiring farmers don't have access to land and don't have the capital required to get started. Come find out how these five friends are creatively and thoughtfully building a profitable, sustainable, ecologically sound business.
