Organic Grain Trials and Transition Farm Tour

Join the Filbrun family on this farm tour double-header. Dale Filbrun of Morning Sun Farm is an early organic pioneer, first becoming OEFFA certified in 1995. The farm focuses on organic egg production and produces its own feed grain. During this stop, attendees will visit the layer houses, tour the Great Harvest Seed grain trial plots, and observe the mechanical cultivation equipment used on the farm. The tour will continue at the adjacent Sonlight Acres for a discussion about transitioning land into organic management. Kenton Filbrun will address various transition strategies, effective approved fertility products, and the path he has followed toward organic certification.

After the tour, the Filbruns invite you to a farmstead lunch sponsored in part by Great Harvest Seed. If you plan to stay for lunch, please RSVP by August 20 by calling 513-267-0148 or emailing sonlightacres @ gmail.com.
