Licking County Pasture Walk June 12

Whether you are a beginning or advanced grazier, if you want to learn more about rotational grazing and grass-finished beef, plan on coming to this year's first Licking County pasture walk, scheduled for June 12, beginning at 6:00 p.m, at Tom Maxwell's farm.
Tom Maxwell is a local Licking County producer who manages a rotational grazing system for his grass-finished beef operation on approximately 140 acres of pasture and hay ground. He successfully runs a management-intensive grazing system for his mostly Red Angus herd, and typically finishes about 10 head per year.
Enjoy a walk through the well-managed paddocks as we discuss with Tom his management practices for the farm. If you want valuable information about rotational grazing, this is the place to be! Refreshments will be served following the pasture walk.
Directions: From Granville, take OH-661 north for about 4.0 miles, then turn left onto Dry Creek Rd NW (Twp Hwy 10). Stay on Dry Creek Road NW for about 1.7 miles, the driveway will be on your right. The farm address is 2563 Dry Creek Rd NW, Granville. Look for signs.
