Reservations Required at Osborne Nature Center
Osborne’s Older, Wiser, Livelier, Souls will be touring Forest Hill Farm for the August 23rd destination. This year’s theme is “Northeast Iowa Grows It Better.” O.W.L.S. are traveling around Northeast Iowa to find unique farms and businesses who are growing locally.
Forest Hill Farm raises certified organic, grass-fed beef and lamb along with pastured pigs and poultry. Keith and Glenda Plozay began their adventure in 1991 on a very small scale with just three acres. A couple years later they bought another ten acres and slowly grew their dream into an 85 acre farm. Raising heritage hogs, certified red angus cattle and most recently bees to pollinate the pastures, garden and fruit trees show that conservation is a high priority. To learn more about the animals they raise and their passion for the environment visit their website at foresthillfarmiowa.com
Make reservations by calling (563) 245-1516 or visit the Osborne Nature Center. Please meet at Osborne Park at 10:30. Lunch will be at a local restaurant.
The Osborne Center is located on Highway 13, ten miles north of Strawberry Point or five miles south of Elkader. The center is open from 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday-Saturday, and Sunday noon to 4:00pm. Please call 563-245-1516 for more information or visit www.claytoncountyconservation.org.
