Join us as we continue the 2017 Local Foods/Farm Tour series with a DOUBLE HEADER day on July 25!  In the morning/early afternoon, visit the Bremen Produce Auction, a small produce auction where crops grown by the local Amish community are delivered to the auction by horse and wagon. Get a behind the scenes view of how the market is organized prior to the auction. Stay for the auction and purchase traditional and a unique variety of vegetables, fruit, baked goods, bedding plants, flowers and hanging baskets.

Later in the evening, visit the Berry Family Farm, a very diversified farm featuring “natural beef” raised with no antibiotics, no hormones, grass fed and/or non GMO grain fed. The beef is sold directly to the consumer in various quantities. They also have pasture raised pork, chicken & eggs, turkeys (seasonal) and a limited supply of lamb. New ventures include a high tunnel for vegetable production. Come visit the farm and learn from Brad about what it takes to meet the regulations associated with selling meat directly to consumers. Check out their website at www.berryfamilyfarm.com.

Know your farmer, know your food! Join us for a day exploring producers of locally grown commodities. Reservations are not required, but are appreciated by contacting Kelley at OSU Extension (740-652-7263).
