Organic Cash Grain Farm Tour
Plain City, OH
Friday, August 3, 2018
10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
John and Joyce Kauffman's farm is in the heart of a large organic community in Madison County. The Kauffman family purchased the farm in 1912 and they have been farming organically since 2009. Along with their son, Joel, they run a 500 acre cash grain operation of corn, soybeans, wheat, and rye. During this tour, see the practices they implement, the equipment they use, and how they store grain on site. An OEFFA Grain Growers Chapter meeting will take place before the tour from 10-11:45 a.m. Bring a side dish or dessert to share for a potluck lunch from 11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Meat, drinks, and table service will be provided. The tour will begin at 1 p.m.
To register for the potluck, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
