OTC Ag Students Visit
Organic Farming Operation

Ag Students visit Organic Farming Operation

Relinda Walker (above, right) explains her organic farming operation to students from Ogeechee Technical College’s Agribusiness program during a recent visit by the class to Walker Farms in Screven County.  Walker grows a variety of organic crops, including beans, squash, potatoes, carrots, and a variety of other products.  Aside from supplying a number of different retail and food service businesses with her products, Walker regularly participates in the Main Street Farmers’ Market in Statesboro.  According to Elliott Marsh, OTC Agribusiness program director, exposing the students to all aspects of agriculture, including organic operations, is important to providing a broad view of the industry they are studying.  “This type of operation is different than many of the larger non-organic operations that the students see, but it is important that they realize that organic production is becoming more prevalent, and that it is a viable option as a business,” stated Marsh.
