Diversified Direct Marketing Farm Tour
Sunday, July 22, 2018
Thistle Rock Farm is a diversified operation, home to vegetable and herb production, sheep and goats, laying hens, a mature forest, and bottom ground which they used to grow soft red wheat in 2017.
The sheep and goats are managed for wool fiber and the chickens' free-range diet is supplemented with non-GMO, no-soy grain.
An established orchard has six varieties of apples, including some hard to find types.
Thistle Rock Farm supports two community supported agriculture (CSA) programs, hosts farm-to-fork dinners and an on-farm market, and vends seasonally at the Kokomo Farmers' Market.
Join this free farm tour to see a diversified, direct marketing farm, with ground that has not been exposed to chemicals for more than 40 years.
