Jess, Lane and Rhett own 90 acres outside of Waynesville, Ohio which is the home farm purchased in 2013.
There is a small creek that runs through it that is the farm's namesake and some wooded ground that is kept as a natural area. In 2017, the balance of the farm was converted from the traditional row crops commonly found in this area to pasture. To better conserve the highly erodible soils, we planted a year round root system with grasses and made a large capital investment by installing over 2.5 miles of fence. This investment made five paddocks to be rotationally grazed. We want this farm to be ecologically sound which is why we have made the changes to preserve our soils and land we are blessed to operate near Caesars Creek State park.
We purchased the neighbor farm in 2019 to complement and expand our original 55 acres and grazing rotation.
We are local to both Cincinnati and Dayton.
Our farm is also home to the Meat Retreat, an on-farm retail store, offering our products for sale and products from other local farms. It is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. We are closed on Mondays. We hope you will stop by if you are in the area.
