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.
“If the farm bill were to reallocate some of this funding to support farmers as they transition to organic systems, more farmers would be incentivized to make the switch. This would create the foundation for a growing network of organic producers in the United States. Unfortunately, policy is riddled with special interests and is often slow to change. As a result, consumers must drive the demand for organic food today.”
