The owners of the Hearthstone Berry Farm welcome birders to come to bird during picking hours. You don’t have to pick if you just want to bird. They are making a birding trail for visitors and it will be accessible during business hours free of charge.
Hearthstone Berry Farm is a fruit farm in Nova, Ohio. Hearthstone was originally part of an 85-acre dairy farm. In 2008, 34 acres were in Timothy hay and 12 acres of lowland woods grew on the north property line. Over the past 8 years, we have planted peaches, blackberries, black currants, and elderberries. Elderberries were planted in a trial plot as part of a SARE grant in 2010. The bulk of the farm is still in hay, but now the front six acres are in orchard and there is a half-acre pond for irrigation.
The goal is to provide fresh fruit and vegetables for the contiguous counties in a manner that respects the environment and is economically sustainable. Hearthstone will take ten years to bring into full production. Drop by for a jar of honey this year, blackberries the next; enjoy an afternoon in the country and come watch us grow.
Closed for winter.
Saturdays and Thursday by appointment mid-June through August.
We are closed Sundays to spend time with family.
