Fresh Harvest Farm is a family farm that has been using yellow perch to grow produce sustainably with aquaponics in their three greenhouses since 2011. During the tour, visitors will learn how aquaponics works while conserving resources. The Blackburn's farm is also home to goats, alpacas, and chickens, as well as the Aquaponic Farming Course, a hands-on course that teaches the basics of aquaponics and how to build your own system.

This event is presented by The Ohio State University and part of the 2019 Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. Events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted in the tour brochure. For more information about OSU's other events, go to www.extension.osu.edu.
