Programs We Love
Why We Love Them
Turner Farm is the largest certified organic farm in the Cincinnati area. The farm has been in operation since the early 1800s and 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. We especially love the fresh fruits, vegetables and meats available at their market, as well as the programs taught by UC Integrative Health. Check out their calendar of events.
