About the Event
Come join us at the farm! Learn about how we raise YOUR beef from start to finish! Bring the kids for some old-fashioned farm fun and learning too!
This year we are going tour style! On the tour you will see each stage of the life of a cow from birth to finshed. You will see hay and grain in the field and be educated on the planting to harvest of each crop. You will end at the finsh barn for our beef and see the handling systems in place.
You can also see the final product of ground corn turned into cattle feed. Our very own veternarian and co-op member, Dr. Tricyn Parker, will be on site for Q&As. There will be fun for the kids, photo opps, and farm animals to visit while you enjoy the day. Pack a lunch or grab a Buckeye Valley burger at our food truck. You are welcome to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to picknic as a family.
After the last tour, aproximately 5:00, we plan to have some social time with you. It might be really hot but who doesn't love a bon fire and s'mores! We have found that we all really enjoy just having converstaions with you. During the event we are focused on showing you what we do and letting you ask questions about our farm practices. These social hours (5-7pm) will give us the chance to just enjoy time together as farmer and supporter.
We ask that you please RSVP so we can plan for the day. Bring the whole family and make some memories down on the farm! We can't wait to see you!
Keep checking the event and social media for any updates we might share.
