Basket of Life Farm

Our 2014 CSA is accepting new members!

You can sign up on our CSA on our website and guarantee yourself a summer of local food at Just click on Sign up for our CSA.

In 2013 we provided healthy local food to over 200 families. 2014 will be our twelfth year as a CSA and we are getting better every year.

We are a small family run farm which specializes in local healthy veggies for our CSA and others. Located on 32 acres in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park we are proud to be a part of a unique program which is helping to restore the agricultural heritage of the region.

Our farm is in Peninsula, Ohio - just minutes from Route 8. Map us, you will be surprised how close we are! We have members from as far as Green, Barberton, Cleveland Heights and Parma.

Starting in June we will have a road side stand up for all your local produce needs, all week.

We view our CSA as a way for us to have a relationship with our members and they to have a relationship with our farm. We see farming as a sustainable future for our family. Providing high quality, naturally grown local produce is our goal. Be sure to join our mailing list for updates on farm events, classes, the CSA, recipes and weekly deals for the farmers market!

We are not certified organic but always use natural and sustainable techniques. Any fungicides or pesticides we may use on our farm are approved for use by certified organic growers. However, we use integrated pest management and heavy rotation as our primary pest control methods.

Please contact us with questions and visit our Facebook page and our newly updated webpage...

Thank you.

Sadly they are leaving farming and will no longer have a CSA or participate in the farmer's market.

Not only do you get to feed the chickens, but Heather also has small classes/workshops on occasion. The canning workshop was a lot of fun and helped me to get over the initial hesitation of doing this on my own.... [more]
