Ottawa Lake, Michigan
Join OEFFA’s Grain Growers Chapter for a state-line farm tour. John and Pat Bartholomew, along with son Gary Bartholomew and grandson Josh Fitzpatrick, farm 500 acres on the Ohio-Michigan line. Certified organic since 1988, they grow corn, soybeans, wheat, and clover for cover crop and seed production. Of special interest to fellow grain growers, the Bartholomews’ mechanical cultivator guidance system and The Weed Zapper will be on display, in addition to a collection of restored antique tractors. A chapter meeting will take place before the tour.
