The Ohio Fresh Foods Corridor will be holding two workshops in February for those interested in specialty crop production to help strengthen individual marketing efforts and engage consumers.

“These workshops are great opportunities for those looking to get into the local foods scene, grow their own specialty crops, and learn new ways to promote their businesses and reach new audiences,” said Mike Estadt, Pickaway County Extension educator and Pickaway County Competitiveness Ag Committee member.

“Great experts and local farmers will share their experiences and help attendees make the most out of their specialty crop endeavors.”
