OEFFA’s free public farm tour series continue next week in Portage County with a tour of Birdsong Farm. Birdsong Farm is a family-owned certified organic farm in northeast Ohio. Owner Matt Herbruck has been in the farming business for 18 years and has grown vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers at the farm since 2009. In 2011, Matt added 10 more acres to the farm, and today, with the help of greenhouses and low tunnels, Birdsong Farm is a year-round business. Matt specializes in greens, herbs, and root crops, which are sold at area farmers' markets and through a summer and winter community supported agriculture (CSA) program that feeds about 80 share members.
A firm believer in balancing sound ecological farming practices with effective business management, Matt will talk about how he keeps his land and his business healthy, while maintaining a high quality of life for his family.
Birdsong Farm is located at 11316 Wheeler Rd., Garrettsville, OH.
