Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food
Welcome to Seminary Hill Farm
Seminary Hill Farm is a certified organic farm covering 10 acres of the campus of Methodist Theological School in Ohio. Surrounded by woodlands, a network of paths fall between the precise layout of open, fertile fields. Two 96-foot hoop houses stretch across the back corner of the acreage, with mini hoop houses lining the path to the barn. These hoop houses extend the season and allow the farm to provide fresh food all year long. From the layout of the farm to the planning for the fields, each detail is carefully considered by the team at Seminary Hill Farm in order to offer the metropolitan area of Columbus, Ohio a product worth celebrating.
Whether it is during the heights of the hot summer months or the cold, dreary days of winter, our farm team is hard at work building a biological farming system that optimizes every aspect of production. Our strategic crop rotation ensures plant nutrition. Natural fertilizers, such as organic matter and compost, builds the sustainability of the soil. Hand management is preferred to preserve the integrity of the soil and the health of the plant. The harvest is carefully planned so that every crop is harvested at its peak using the proper equipment and is washed and prepared to ensure quality. The tools and techniques Seminary Hill Farm uses are based on the knowledge learned from hundreds of years of traditional farming. We are committed to these practices because we are dedicated to building a sustainable food system for our community and the future generations to come.
The community can access the fresh, local food harvested from Seminary Hill Farm in a number of different ways. Seminary Hill Kitchen works closely with our farm team to incorporate the fresh harvest into their daily menus and private events. Members who sign up for our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, have weekly access to fresh food from the farm every season. The CSA program has proven a great way to gather as a community and support local food. The farm also attends local farmer's markets and provides hyper-local ingredients to restaurants within the region.
