Creek’s Edge Farm is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachians in southwest Ohio. The diversified organic homestead includes a 130-year old farmhouse, two barns, a corn crib, original spring house, natural woodlands, and wetlands. Join farmers Denise and Skip to see learning gardens using companion planting with herbs, vegetables, and perennials. Tour blueberry, raspberry, elderberry, and goji berry production, as well as hemp cultivation and production. This scenic farm tour will also feature a sunflower field in full bloom, rain garden, native plant pollinator habitat, apiary and honeybee observation hive, and wetland milkweed habitat. Denise will share how they raise and release hundreds of Monarch butterflies each year.
