Patchwork Gardens is a chemical-free farm located in Dayton, Ohio. The farm is in its 13th year now, and growing more productive every year as we learn from our experience. It is our goal to spread good food and good farming practices in our community through our large CSA program. We also contract with local restaurants and wholesalers. We grow our food without the use of any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Our approach to agriculture focuses on healthy soil and healthy plants. We’re proud to be growing great vegetables and are eager to share them.
