Business Plan/Goals

Do you have a business plan? Please write an informative description of your vision & goals for your farming future.:

We are a first generation farm family. Our farm business is Ohio Till Farmstead LLC. located outside Marysville Ohio. We are in search of farm land to expand our operations. We grow and package our own popcorn and artisan grains to sell locally throughout Ohio. We practice crop rotation, cover cropping, and conservative tillage. We are not currently certified organic but do practice organic crop management such as cultivation to remove weeds and do not apply synthetic pesticides. We have future plans for constructing our own small milling facility to produce flour for the growing artisan baking industry around Ohio. Please visit our website to see a little more about us and our farm. https://ohiotillfarmstead.net/ We would be interested in farmland from 10 acres and up depending on distance from our farm. We look forward to working together! Thank you!
