Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Gorman Heritage Farm builds relationships between people and their food sources, a disconnect that has grown increasingly severe in recent decades. Most Americans are 2-4 generations removed from the farm and many people, especially children, do not know where food comes from or why farms are important. Additionally, the small, family-owned farm is overshadowed by commercial farming. Education about agriculture, nutrition, sustainability, and the environment serves the individual, the family, the community, and the land.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adult and Family Opportunities

Regular open hours, interpretive center, classes for local schools, adult education, farm tours, historic documentation of the farm and public events.

Additionally, there is a market garden, which provides a source of locally grown produce to our community and a cutting garden.

We provide opportunities for interns in all activities including options in sustainable agriculture.

Population(s) Served

Gorman Heritage Farm offers creative, hands-on, interdisciplinary field trips and programs including school field trips, farm-to-school programs, summer day camp, and preschool story hour.

All school field trips are led by trained staff and volunteers, with small groups of 10 or fewer students and meet Ohio State Common Core Learning Standards. Students enjoy grinding corn, feeding chickens, tasting from the garden and petting farm animals. Younger students’ experiences are sensory based, while older students’ experiences expand to include such topics as basic needs, soil/food production and local Ohio history. Classroom studies can be integrated into the field trip to build on students’ knowledge and understanding.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Gorman Heritage Farm has been continuously operating since 1835 and several original buildings remain in use. Now a 122-acre farm, we maintain native growing forests, trails, and row-crop fields, raise animals for education and meat production, and cultivate several variously sized vegetable gardens and flower beds used in community supported agriculture, cutting gardens, and formal and passive educational programs utilizing the time and talent of staff and generous volunteers. Formal education programs include on-site school field trips, farm-to-school visits, summer camp, scout programs, tours, and preschool story hour. Additionally, families, groups, and individuals can visit the farm during open hours or purchase a membership.

We aim to accomplish an increased knowledge among visitors in the following: Where their food comes from; Small-scale farming practices; Nutrition awareness; Sustainability; Environmental awareness; and a History of Farming in Southwest Ohio.
