Carriage House Farm is located in the village of North Bend, Ohio. The farm was established in 1855 by descendants of Revolutionary War veterans who had migrated with their families from the East Coast across the Appalachian Mountains and into the fertile Ohio River Valley. We are one of three Ohio Century Farms located in Hamilton County.

Carriage House Farm is a mixed-use working farm totaling 300 acres of land. On the farm, is Riverwind Stable, with capacity for 32 horses, 30 acres of pasture, and 3.5 miles of dedicated bridal trails along the Great Miami River, an acre and-a-half, non-certified, organic produce garden and high tunnel with a focus on greens and root crop production, twelve acres of various conservation test crops and heirloom/zero-spray grains, a beekeeping operation responsible for over 80 beehives that produce over a ton of honey, and about 150 acres of conventional agriculture that is still being used for bean and corn production, and a wonderful hillside wood fired grill and oven for farm to table dining events.

The farm employs three full-time individuals and half-dozen part-time employees, including Jenn McCormick, the face of the farm at Hyde Park Farmers’ Market. The farm also attends two other farmers’ markets in Northside and Wyoming. The produce, honey, and artisan grain business supplies a host of high-quality regional restaurants and retailers including Orchids, Local 127, Whole Foods Market, Dutch’s Larder, Nectar, The Palace, Nicholson’s, Park + Vine, Picnic and Pantry, Bridgetown Finer Meats, Bouquet, and Melt.

Carriage House Farm has the distinct pleasure of playing host for over two dozen dinners in 2016 including A Foraged Dinner, Women in Farming and the Culinary World, and The Haymaker: A 75-mile Snout to Tail Dinner.

Carriage House Farm was just named the 2016 Best Of Cincinnati “Local Farm” and was a recipient of the prestigious 2012 Made In America: American Treasures culinary award and several Edible Ohio Valley “Local Hero Awards.”
