The conference in Zanesville on March 23 will be aimed at current and future farm operators. The conference will be at the Muskingum County Convention and Welcome Center. Topics on the agenda include maple syrup, sheep production, livestock nutrition, and beekeeping. Ohio State Extension also has an eight-week program that offers an introduction to the business of small farming.
