“Defending the earth means safeguarding biodiversity, the landscape and farming. Those who haven’t seen the importance of farming haven’t understood anything!”

Slow Food Day at Morgan Farm

Join Slow Food Northern Ohio at Morgan Farm
as we celebrate spring and enjoy the season’s
first farm-fresh foods.

Located 67 miles southwest of Cleveland near Ashland, Ohio,
Morgan Farm features ten acres of unspoiled Ohio farmland where you can enjoy a historic, art-filled 1866 farmhouse; mingle with goats, horses, pigs and heritage turkeys; and experience Ohio farm life. Spend an afternoon biking the countryside; browse local antique shops; and pick out spring flowers for mom at local greenhouses.

Join us on Saturday for an afternoon barbeque and the chance buy locally grown foods and baked goods direct from local farmers. On Sunday, bring your own picnic and enjoy the farm at your leisure.
