In recognition of the Cuyahoga Valley’s past as a rural farming area, several small working farms dot the landscape thanks to the efforts of the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the Cuyahoga Valley Countryside Initiative and Hale Farm & Village. These privately-owned working farms can be found within or near the boundaries of the Cuyahoga Valley. Most of the farms raise livestock, chickens and turkeys.
The Cuyahoga Valley region is also home to Christmas tree farms, vineyards and farmer’s markets where fresh produce grown in the Valley is available for purchase and used by local chefs at area restaurants.
As a place for all seasons, the Cuyahoga Valley welcomes over three million visitors throughout the year.
