Do you know who grows your food?

Customers at the Farm Market do! One of the best things about shopping at the market is getting to know the farmers who grow the food we eat.

Bill Hood and Deborah Arnold of North Oaks Farm bought 25 acres of land in Adams County, Ohio, 13 years ago and have worked to turn it into a productive farm. At first they lived and worked in Cincinnati and the farm was a weekend project. Since recently retiring and selling their house in Springfield Township, they now we live on the farm full time. This summer they started a flock of chickens for meat and eggs.

“This is our sixth season at the College Hill Farm Market. We appreciate the people who come to the market and buy our produce,” says Debbie. “We strive to work with nature and grow good food for ourselves, our friends and our customers.” 

This week they will bring lots of fresh tomatoes, green beans, sweet corn, and squash from their farm in Adams County.
