Shared Legacy Farms is a small vegetable farm on 20 acres in Elmore. It was founded in 2008 by Kurt Bench with 12 shares, and has doubled in size every year since. In 2013, we finally reached our goal of becoming full-time farmers. We deliver to five sites: Grace United Methodist Church (near Perrysburg Farmer's Market), Toledo Farmer's Market, Temple Shomer Emunim in Sylvania, downtown Port Clinton at the Sutton Center, and our home farm in Elmore. Our CSA lasts for 18 weeks (June-October), and includes: full and half vegetable shares, fruit share grown by neighboring farms, artisan cheese share (Canal Junction Cheese and Turkeyfoot Creamery); free-range egg share (supplied by Weber Ranch), and roasted coffee bean shares (from Maddie and Bella). Visit our website for a link to our registration page. Members also receive our popular weekly newsletter featuring recipes to try, tips for preparing or storing your produce, and general news about the farm. You'll also be invited to rotating farm events throughout the season like Spring Planting days, Potluck Farm day with a Hayride Tour, Pesto Fest, Canning Classes, Bonfire Pumpkin Hunt, and Salsa Fiesta.
