The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association has announced its 2010 series of free public tours of Ohio sustainable and organic farms.

For the past 28 years, OEFFA has offered this series so that Ohioans can learn more about how farmers are meeting the growing demand for food produced with sustainable methods.

Those wanting to learning about the production and marketing techniques of sustainable farms in Ohio are invited to attend. The tour focuses on Clearview Farm in Pataskala on Oct. 2 and the issue of farmland preservation.

Eleven tours will be held between June and October, featuring livestock producers; a poultry processing facility; certified organic farmers; farms that incorporate renewable energy and green building techniques; and farmers using a wide range of direct-to-consumer marketing strategies.
