Grass-fed Livestock tour

August 22, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Grass Roots Farm is a 380 acre grass-based farm raising Red Devon cattle, Katahdin lamb, Cornish Cross chickens, and Berkshire hogs. Value-added products produced on-site are also sold through the Hyde Park Farmers’ Market and Findlay Market in Cincinnati. They lease sub-parcels of their land to independent dairy producers and are seeking to transition the farm to someone who will manage livestock, direct market products, and assume business ownership in steps. Join this tour for a wagon ride to learn about the farm’s wetland mitigation efforts, raising grass-fed beef and pastured meat and poultry, and unique land access opportunities.
