September 15, 12am–12amWhat
The 5th Annual Highland County Farm Tour co-hosted by the Highland County Farm Bureau and the Highland Soil and Water Conservation District will highlight farms in the New Petersburg area that feature updated technology:
- Managing your hay operation at the Karnes Farm
- Innovative high-tech swine facility from the Surber Family
- Karnes Orchard with a newly constructed on-site market place.
The goal of this collaborative event is to provide opportunities for farmers to learn new advanced techniques and interact with others. It will be an educational day to see how others have used various conservation practices on their farms to promote water quality and reduce soil erosion, as well as, incorporate unique projects to sustain their farming operation.
Lunch will be provided. Visit Highland SWCD or Highland County Farm Bureau periodically for more details. To be added to the Farm Tour mailing list to receive notification of the event, please call the SWCD office at 937-393-1922 x 3.
