Since 2010, Morningside Farm has demonstrated that more than 300 varieties of organic vegetables can be profitably grown in Ohio. With five acres and five greenhouses in production, George and Mary Remington produce about every variety of vegetable that can possibly be grown in Medina County, along with berries, herbs, tropical crops, and wild crops for farmers' markets, a community supported agriculture (CSA) program, and restaurants. Guests will learn how the Remingtons manage their organic system from seed to market and discover how Morningside Farm is bringing fresh specialty crop food production back to the Ohio corn field desert, and reintroducing this forgotten craft to a new generation of apprentices.
Directions: The farm is located between I-71 and I-77 about 0.5 miles north of Rte. 303/Center Rd. on State Rd. Driving north on Rte. 303, the farm will be on the right. Look for a MorningSide Farm sign at the driveway.
This event is sponsored by OEFFA and is part of the 2015 Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop series. For more information about other events in the series, go to www.oeffa.org.
