Several years ago (in my quest to buy more locally grown food) I found an amazing farm where I could buy pastuered meat, local produce and free range eggs. In the process of visiting the farm once every month or two, my children were able to see where their food comes from. One fall day, we turned the corner to visit the farm store my 5 year old declared: “mom look, there are turkeys where the cows used to be” and on another visit they actually got to hold a baby chicken. We always have to feed the rabbit and see what produce is available.
That’s why I’m excited to share that if you’ve been looking for somewhere and someway to know a little more about where your food comes from or simply buy fresh, locally, mindfully grown food you have an opportunity to find out more about one local farm and have some good old fashioned family fun on the adventure. Wednesday, May 18 beginning at 6:15pm (presentations start as 7pm) you can come out to Green Acres and see what they have going on. They will have snacks and a cash bar so you won’t be hungry or thirsty and you will be able to see their sustainable farm in action.
Besides excellent quality, local food, Green-Acres offers plenty of other educational opportunities from gardening to equestrian skills, volunteering to summer camps there is plenty to discover at this local farm. Children are welcome and the farm animals will be out. The event is free.

Too bad they are run by a board who cares more about profit and their own agenda than they do about historically significant properties. If you go to this farm, ask them about their efforts to save the Historic Gamble House in Westwood. Bet you get no reply or escorted off the property.
Member of the Gamble Army says
The only thing ‘green’ about Greenacres is the Gamble fortune they’ve been living off of — and are now using for legal fees and the like — to tear down the home of the man whose life and work generated those millions. Sickening. Greenacres: NOT the place to be!
While you are there can you ask them to please stop fighting to rip down the Historic Gamble House? I can’t understand why such an otherwise worthy organization is so determined to destroy a piece of Cincinnati history.
