Cut Flower Farm Tour
Sunday, August 18, 2019
Beginning in 2011, Tracey and Matt Parriman started Tracey Rae Farmer Florist, to nurture their interest in cultivating cut flowers. They began selling cut flowers on leased land. In 2015, they invested in their own property and began to expand their operation. The farm sells a multitude of varieties of fresh cut flowers through their community supported agriculture program. They sell at markets and to special occasions, such as weddings.
Join this tour co-sponsored by OSU Extension Clinton County and Clinton County Natural Resources and Conservation Serivce (NRCS) to hear the perspective of younger generation farmers establishing a small, new business and finding their place in the market. Walk the farm with the Parrimans and discuss a range of subjects, from public grants to soil testing to differentiating your operation in the market. Bring your questions and learn how you can begin your business and what resources are available to you.
Cost and Registration: To RSVP for this free tour, call James Tillman at NRCS at (937) 382-2461 by August 16. Space is limited to 60 people.
