Buckeye Acres was started in 1983 by Jim and Jeanne Counts to provide fresh produce like they had when
they were growing up in northern Ohio. As they are native Ohioians they felt the farm need a little Ohio spirit leading to
the farm the name. They started off with a u-pick strawberry patch and a few vegetables so mom could stay home with us boys.
As my brother and I got older the farm branched out into raspberries, blackberries, and increased the number of vegetable
crops. In 1987 they started to having a harvest festival in October featuring a wide selection of fall decorations and
fun activites for the family which ran until 2003 when we boys went off to explore the world and earn a couple of advanced
degrees along the way. Even though the Harvest festival was put on hold they continued providing high quality fruits and vegetables
to the local community either at the local farmers market or directly off the farm.
In the fall of
2009 the farm transitioned over to Heather, Addison, and I to take it into the next phase of growth. We have some big ideas
and plans for the upcoming years which will include reopening the pumpkin patch and also starting a greenhouse. We look forward
to having you enjoying the fresh produce we will be providing.
See ya at the farm.
