What is unique about the farm is that we are located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, only a half hour from Cleveland, a major metropolitan city located on Lake Erie. There is plenty to see and do locally and regionally.
On the farm, we need help with our flock of Dorset sheep, Rouen ducks, border collies, and horses. A project that we are working on is out tall spindle orchard. We also have gardens of spicy herbs, vegetables, and flowers to tend. And, located near an urban area, we are often asked to give farm tours and host some special events.
