Hello! I'm Rachel Bellis, and together with my husband Justin Turner, I am founder and farmer at Southgate Farm. I didn't grow up on a farm, but over the last ten years, I have fallen in love with sustainable farming. That love for the land and eating well has driven me to work at different types of farms in several states and even countries. I find it to be a great adventure to live and eat in connection with my local environment and with the seasons. It is humbling, grounding and rewarding.
We just started Southgate Farm this year, but we have big plans to produce high quality food for the community here in Green and Northeast Ohio in general.
We are in the process of creating a diverse vegetable plot and on-farm sales stand, and we are planning events at the farm for the 2020 season. Stay tuned if you share my belief that fresh local food is the best food. Small scale, environmentally conscious agriculture is part of the future. Please join our email list below if you want to learn more, stay up to date as our farm grows, and be the first to know about events and classes. We hope to see you at the farm this season!
