About Countryside

>> Countryside’s mission is to build a thriving local food community by connecting people, food, and land in and beyond Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

>> We were established in 1999 as a nonprofit partner of CVNP to assist in the creation of an innovative farmland program that leases historic farmsteads to private farmers who commit to be good stewards to the land.

>> Countryside operates two farmers’ markets and a regional food access program that supports low-income families.
