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.
We’re honored by the work beng done by Peter and Joshua in the gardens around our city. In this segment of Our Ohio, we visit one of the largest community gardens in southwest Ohio, the Franciscan Ministries Community Garden near the city of Wyoming, north of Cincinnati. The unique thing about this garden is not just its size, but that more than half of the 100 garden plots are managed by Bhutanese refugees. Learn about their journey and the new roots they are planting in Ohio. Franciscan Ministries, Inc. Heartfelt Tidbits Turner Farm Community Garden Program Turner Farm
