Spotlight: Brunty Farms

Brunty farms is a small family farm located in Bath Township, Ohio. They specialize in pasture raised eggs, meats and organically raised fruits and vegetables. As a sustanable farm – putting the land, animals, and customers over profits – they offer a great alternative to commercial farms. 

History of Brunty Farms

Brunty Farms is run by Jeff Brunty and his girlfriend Melanie Schenk. The farm began ten years ago with only 7 chickens and a barn that was built more than sixty years ago. Eventually, the whole family was pulled into the growing farm, which quickly outgrew the existing space. The farm is now located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and works with the Countryside Conservatory to preserve and revitalize old farms.

This farm raises all products (animals and produce) purely as nature intended!

These animals or poulty live out on pastures, spending countless hours enjoying the fresh air, sunshine, and the summer breeze.

In fact, you can even visit the farm, meet the people raising your food and see exactly what’s going on behind the scenes! You can’t do that at the grocery store.

The products sold by the farm include;

  • Eggs
  • Chicken
  • Turkey
  • Pork
  • Duck
  • Lamb
  • Heritage Poultry
  • Game Birds
  • Produce

You can find purchasing information here. Products are available at the farm or at the Countryside Farmer’s Market.

There isn’t a better way to get fresh and healthy food for your family while supporting the local economy! You can find out more about how Jeff and Melanie minimize the environmental impact here.
