Margraf Family Farm 7838 S. State Rte. 587, McCuthenville, 44844
The Margraf family has been addicted to growing healthy soil for more than 10 years and encourages more people to try this “different” approach. As a family that supports public, local, voluntary actions that lead to bigger benefits for all, they’ve partnered with Seneca Conservation District to make improvements to water quality and soil health.
The farm is an Edge of Field research site for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service and hosts field days for Ohio No-Till Council, FFA, Seneca Conservation District, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
This unique conservation farm practices what it preaches and is inspired to preach what it practices! Join this tour to learn about how the family raises corn, beans, and wheat using 100 percent no-till and cover crops to keep nutrients on the farm and out of the Western Lake Erie Basin, see cows and calves on pasture, tour their machine shed and precision equipment, and enjoy lemonade and cookies on the back porch.
The tour is part of OEFFA’s Sustainable Farm Tour.
