Small Sustainable Pastured Egg and Market Garden Tour
Sunday, September 2, 2018
Freshtown Farm and City Bird Columbus is a partnership between vegetable farmer, Marcie Todd, and egg producer, Mike Kelley. They farm on some leased land in Pataskala and on a small plot rented from the Columbus Land Bank Program on the city's south side. They have a small community supported agriculture program and attend the Westgate Farmers Market and Clintonville Farmers' Market. They established their farms in late 2017, so while the infrastructure is rudementary, they provide only the best for the chickens and are working hard to build the soil. Join this tour if you'd like to know more about what it has taken to get their farms off the ground and the steps they are taking for a more successful future.
Directions: From Columbus, take I-70 toward Wheeling. Exit at Rte. 310 toward Pataskala and turn left. Continue on Rte. 310 until it turns into Broad St. Turn right and take the immediate next left back onto Rte. 310. Pass by a golf coarse and a real estate agent office, and take the first left onto Hadley's Mill Rd. Take the first left onto McIntosh Rd. The property will be just past the big park on the right.
This Clintonville Farmers' Market event is part of the 2018 Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series, featuring farm tours, workshops, and other events. All events are free and open to the public unless otherwise specified. For a complete schedule, go to www.oeffa.org/q/2018farmtours
