Learn about selling meat directly to consumers


WOOSTER, Ohio — Learn more about selling meat directly to consumers in a free public seminar at 7 p.m. Sept. 18 at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center in Wooster.


Speaking will be Kathleen Harris, who started upstate New York’s Northeast Livestock Processing Service Company (http://nelpsc.com/), a new and profitable link between farmers and meat processors; and Leah Miller of Ohio’s Small Farm Institute (http://smallfarminstitute.org/), an organizer of a project studying grass-based feeding strategies and high-value meat-cutting methods.

Harris, among other things, will talk about how farmers can plan their harvests and market their animals, how processors can schedule with farmers and understand consumers’ needs and how both can educate consumers on the differences between local and non-local meat.


Meet in 103 Research Services Building on the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center campus, 1680 Madison Ave. Come in the main entrance, turn left onto Payne Drive, and find the Research Services Building, a two-story brick building, immediately to the left.


Advance registration is requested. Contact Megan Shoenfelt of Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center’s Agroecosystems Management Program at 330-202-3537 or e-mail shoenfelt.9@osu.edu.
