The 2019 Sustainable Farm Tour, Workshop and Events dates have been released.

This annual series of public tours features 30 organic and ecological farms and businesses in Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana, providing unique opportunities for farmers, educators, and conscientious eaters to learn about sustainable agriculture and local foods on the farm from growers and producers with years of practical experience. In addition to farm tours, this year’s series also includes 16 other events, including workshops on farm planning, leadership, keylines, hoophouses, and fiber; farm-to-table dinners; open houses; networking events; summer camps; a conference, and a multi-part beginning farmer training course.

All events are free and open to the public and do not require pre-registration unless otherwise noted. Events will take place rain or shine. Guests should dress appropriately; hats, sunglasses, long pants, closed toe walking shoes, and sunscreen are recommended. Tours involve standing and moderate walking; visitors with physical limitations or other concerns should contact the tour host in advance. For everyone’s safety, guests should keep children with them at all times. Please do not bring pets to the tours.
