Columbus Urban Farm Tour: Suburban Farmstead and Micro-Dairy Tour
JEDIDIAH FARM + STUDIO is a 5-acre Certified Organic farmstead in the suburbs of Westerville, where the Taylor family utilizes ecologically inclusive principles to encourage biodiversity and resilient food production. Visitors can expect to see a space that is in transition from the typical suburban lawnscape to perennial food forests, guilds, woodlands, and pasture; incorporating annual and perennial crops within rotational grazing principles. The use of dairy goats, honeybees, pastured poultry, and heritage hogs for pasture rehabilitation will be discussed during the tour, as well as the importance of incorporating guilds and native plantings to create supporting systems.
The Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series is a joint project sponsored by the Franklin County Office of Ohio State University Extension, and the Columbus Urban Farmers Network. The goal of the Columbus Urban Farm Tour Series tours is to demonstrate to the general public the many benefits of urban farms in Columbus. There is no fee or advance registration required to participate in these tours which are open to the public. Farm tours will be held rain or shine and participants should dress accordingly.
