XENIA — The next Greene County Farm Forum program will open an ongoing discussion dealing with the food supply.

Chad Bitler and Jonathan Gabis from the Greenacres Foundation of Cincinnati will speak at the Farm Forum Monday, June 27 at the Union United Methodist Church, 393 Washignton Road.

Bitler and Gabis will share their farming operation which deals with locally grown foods including beef, chickens, pork, fruits, vegetables and eggs which they sell locally.

The program will start at approximately 7 p.m. A meal will be served at 6:30 p.m. at a cost of $10 per person for those interested. RSVP Paul Ayres by Friday, June 24 if you intend to have dinner.
