Conneaut Creek Farm

Conneaut Creek Farm is a community-based farm, meaning that we are committed to community outreach and we take proactive steps to build our own community of supporters and to involve members of the community in our farming and educational activities. We produce locally-adapted, hybrid varieties of vegetables and grains and a large quantity of hay in square bales. All of our products are grown without chemical pesitcides or herbicides, and we are in the process of seeking organic certification. As of Fall 2007, we expect to be producing grass-fed goat milk, poultry and related value added products (e.g., soap). By spring 2008 we will be producing honey from bees. We are planning several building projects in the near future, with the aim of expanding our capacity for residential apprenticships and on-site educational programming. We are also developing a forest garden as a permaculture demonstration site, and we are setting aside another area on the land for persons who may wish to undertake private meditation retreats.

Our overall focus is on supporting the development of a healthy, local and organic food system in NE Ohio, and in supporting educational opportunities that allow individuals and groups to practice sustainability in a way that minimizes dependence of fossil fuels, promotes social justice and food security, strengthens the ties between farm and city, and achieves balance through outreach to underserved communities.
