Organic Grain Transition Farm Tour and Grain Growers Chapter Meeting

July 23 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Greg and Beth Bishop and their son, Blake, transitioned Bishop Family Farms’ 1,300 acres to organic production two years ago. Their five year crop rotation includes corn, soybeans, wheat, sunflowers, and canola.

During this tour, attendees will learn about their transition and see their equipment, including an electric weeder.

An OEFFA Grain Growers Chapter meeting will take place before the tour from 10-11:45 a.m. Bring a side dish or dessert to share for a potluck lunch from 11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Meat, drinks, and serviceware will be provided. The tour will begin at 1 p.m.
