Located in the beautiful rolling hills of central Ashland County, OH, our farm has been in the family for generations, and we've lived here since the day we were married in February, 1973. For decades it was a dairy farm with Holsteins and registered Brown Swiss making up the herd. In 2003, we retired from dairying; now we raise dairy steers and Belgian horses, as well as replacement heifers for other dairymen. We also own and operate a small seed business, Ashland Seed Company, and farm approximately 500 acres of crops: alfalfa, wheat, barley, speltz, rye, oats, corn, soybeans, sweet corn, pumpkins, and garden mums.
In 2005 we opened our own on-the-farm market, Honey Haven Farm Market (open Tuesday - Saturday from late June to early September) selling produce freshly picked from our own gardens: tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, onions, beets, cucumbers, zucchini, squash, lettuce, cabbage, potatoes, cantaloupes, watermelons, and sweet corn, among other things. Our motto is "to get produce any fresher, you'd have to pick it yourself!"
In 2006, we expanded our vegetable and flower market with the addition of a 20' x 96' greenhouse, and we have hanging baskets and planters, as well as flats of vegetables and flowers for sale from the end of April through mid-June. We also added a 15' x 96' high tunnel this year, which has extended our growing season, allowing us to offer home-grown produce weeks earlier than previously was possible.
We've been operating our pick-your-own pumpkin patch on weekends in October since 1999 and our corn mazes (an 8-acre daytime maze for family fun and a 4-acre night-time haunted maze for scary fun) on fall weekends since 2000. In recent years, we've added a straw maze and petting zoo for kids, as well as a seasonal country store and refreshments to make an autumn visit to our farm a more enjoyable experience for the entire family.
