Turner Farm is one of 3 working farms remaining within the village of Indian Hill. It has been in operation since the early 1800's. 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. Hedgerow and meadow mix with wooded areas. Wetland runoff feeds the pond.
Students from Gamble Montessori High School stopped by the farm yesterday for an up-close introduction to Turner Farm's produce and livestock practices. Livestock manager Daniel Losekamp got the students to help corral sheep for hoof trimming.
