OHIO CITY FARM SITS ON SIX ACRES AND IS LOCATED AT BRIDGE AVE. AND W. 24TH STREET
Ohio City Farm, one of the largest contiguous urban farms in the United States at nearly six acres, exists to provide fresh, local and healthy food to Cleveland’s underserved residents, boost the local food economy, and educate the community about the importance of a complete food system. The farm boasts stunning views of the Cleveland skyline and provides a welcome break in the typical urban landscape.
The farm is jointly administered by Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority and The Refugee Response.
Between the months of June and November, we encourage you to visit to take a stroll on the grassy pathway that runs the length of the farm and take in the stunning view of Downtown Cleveland.
ENJOY THE HARVEST
Ohio City Farm produce is available through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program membership, wholesale to restaurants and retail, and at our farm stand on Saturdays throughout the growing season.
THE REFUGEE RESPONSE
Ohio City Farm is operated by The Refugee Response (TRR), a non-profit that works to empower refugees to become self-sufficient and contributing members of their new communities. As an initiative of TRR, the Ohio City Farm nourishes the community with local food and empowers resettled refugees in Northeast Ohio by providing them with employment and training.
Since breaking ground in 2010, at least seven countries of origin have been represented on the farm team. Many refugees working at the farm have a background working agriculture in their home countries and bring a wide range of experience to their work here in Cleveland. For our team members, the farm provides a familiar and welcoming work environment that is invaluable when acclimating to a new city and country.
All crops that go into the Ohio City Farm CSA, restaurant orders, farm stand, and farm-to-community food donation program were sown, grown and harvested by the hardworking team employed by TRR.
