Local Grown Summer Series Holthouse FarmsJuly 10, 2023
To kickoff our Local Grown Summer Series we would like to introduce our local grown partner Holthouse farms. Holthouse Farms is a 5th generation family owned vegetable farm, located in north central Ohio, that has been producing high quality produce for over 100 years.
Two thing that has characterized Holthouse Farms is hard work and the idea of “sustainability.” In recent years that word has been brought to the forefront of the public’s mind, but for Holthouse Farms it has been an intrinsic part of the business from the beginning.
“We’ve been caretakers of the land for over a 100 years. We’ve
always know that we have to take care of the land if we expect it to take care of us.”-Ken Holthouse
To that end Holthouse Farms recognizes the importance of local markets for local growers. Produce harvested in the morning, processed and shipped by that evening will likely be on the shelf within 24 hours of leaving the field. The local consumers have the benefit of a better tasting and fresher product, lower cost and environmental impact resulting from shorter “food miles,” longer shelf life, and on top of all that our regions economy sees benefits by keeping the money close to home.
