Welcome to Learning Tree Farm!


We are a working farm that is committed to providing hands-on learning experiences for children and families in a traditional farm setting.  We host and educate school children, homeschool groups, parent groups, gardening clubs, and families throughout the year.

Weekday mornings in spring and fall are our peak season for field trips.  You are welcome to visit during these times and you will be able to jump in between our school visitors.  We highly recommend that groups of 10 or more call ahead so that we can help schedule your visit at a time that will assure your most pleasant experience.

What to See


Learning Tree Farm is an 85-acre working farm and outdoor education center. Our mission is to facilitate hands-on learning in a traditional farm setting. We encourage you to interact with farm animals by going into stalls and pastures. Please just remember to close gates behind you at all times.



We have two historic barns for you to visit– the Tobacco Barn and the Bank Barn– both house our farm animals, including goats, sheep, ponies, donkeys, and more!



Our teaching garden has raised beds and an orchard that are great spots to learn more about how local seasonal vegetables, fruits, and herbs are cultivated and grown!


Hiking Trails

Whether you choose the long or short loop, we have miles of forested hiking trails to explore. Trails lead to a tire swing and an observation tower—fun spots for all ages!

Century House

Step into the original farmhouse, built in 1829, and into the lives of early Ohio settlers. The Century House is a pioneer museum to be explored when farm staff is on site!

How to have a great day at the farm:

Wear comfortable shoes - mud boots or old shoes are a great choice while flip-flops won't be comfortable on the gravel or pastures

Please close the gates and barn doors after yourself to help keep the animals safe

Don’t forget to take your trash home with you

The Century House does not have regular visiting hours and is open when staff is in the office or during scheduled/special programs

Bring a picnic lunch, enjoy the hiking trails, and visit the animals and farm garden

Smoking is NOT permitted anywhere on the farm property
