Butler County Farm Day

Saturday, May 4, 2019
Reserve Run Family Farm in Hanover Twp

2850 Lanes Mill Rd, Oxford, Ohio

 

Cost: Free

Butler County, considered a bedroom community for Cincinnati with many urban areas, is rich with agricultural history and continues to have an agricultural focus in many of our rural areas. Farm Day invites you to learn more about Ohio’s number 1 industry – Agriculture. This day will give you a glimpse into what farm life. We also hope our 300 + participants will walk away with a greater understanding of farm life, the passion producers have for their livestock and agricultural operations, and how our producers work to find ways to conserve our natural resources through conservation practices. The Johnson Family have a fantastic farm that they are willing to welcome you to. They have a variety of animals that you can meet including cows, pigs, lambs, and chickens.
