Tour farms in Clark County June 22

Tour wineries, breweries and local Clark County farms from the comfort of a chartered bus with Clark County Farm Bureau on Saturday, June 22. Meet at Mother Stewart’s in Springfield at 11 a.m. and the bus will depart at 11:30 a.m. Stops on our farm tour include Brandeberry Winery in Enon, Little Miami Flower Company in Yellow Springs, and H.A.R.D. Acre Farm in New Carlisle. Tastings will be available on some stops along the tour.

Brandeberry Winery is located between Springfield and Dayton and grows a variety of grapes on their farm. All of their wines are carefully made by hand in small batches. The current wine varieties include Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah, Vidal, Cayuga, Seyval, Cherry and Blackberry.

The H.A.R.D. Acre Farm became a fully functioning farm in 2016 that offers a working environment for adults with disabilities and dementia. Their farm mission is “To provide adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), those faced with disabilities & those aging living with Dementia the dignity to enjoy meaningful work, life & social relationships in a safe agricultural community, to participate as good stewards of God’s bounty and to practice Honor and Respect Daily at The H.A.R.D. Acre Farm.”

Little Miami Flower Company was started in 1988 when the current owner John Waymire had the idea that he could produce better flowers than he was able to find any other place in the world. They now have a 62,000 square foot greenhouse where they “ensure that each flower is a little fresher, a little brighter, and grown as if it was for his mother.”

You can RSVP online for this trip starting May 10. The tour is free for Ohio Farm Bureau members and $25 for non-members. You must be 21 to attend. For questions, please call our office at 937-335-1471 or email [email protected].
