Defend local food and farms

We are sincerely grateful for and value our sponsors. Because of local businesses like yours we can serve our community and advance our work year after year!

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.

>> We also educate and train aspiring farmers through our New Farmer Academy to build career pathways and support small farms throughout northeast Ohio.

>> Countryside operates two farmers’ markets and a regional food access program that supports low-income families in four counties at 12 farmers markets in our network.
