Located in the village of Indian Hill, Turner Farm is the largest certified organic farm in the Cincinnati area. The farm has been in operation since the early 1800s and in 1994, under the stewardship of Bonnie Mitsui, it became a farm devoted to growing organically. The farm is home to a variety of plants and animals, both domestic and wild. There are open pastures for the sheep and chickens interspersed with gardens and fields. Turner Farm is also home to one of the nation’s premier teaching kitchens and provides educational opportunities for community members who want to bring the Turner Farm ethos of stewardship into their own kitchens.

“Agroforestry is essentially a forest-mimicking agriculture that involves growing trees, shrubs and vegetables in tight assemblages. It is an ancient technology created by indigenous peoples and popularized in recent decades by newer landowners. Although it’s difficult to pin down how much of the world’s agricultural land contains tree cover, figures range from 100 million hectares to as much as 1 billion hectares, which lock up an estimated .75 gigatons of carbon per year.”
