Matthew Keener

Farmer, Keener Farm

In 1830, our farm was purchased by my great-great grandfather, John Keener, when Ohio had only been a state for 27 years. The 160-acre farm has 50 acres of old-growth forest and 100 acres of farmland and pasture. The farm house, bank barn, tobacco shed, and ice house were all built before 1850 by my ancestors. 

In 2011, responding to a need from the educated consumer for local responsibly raised meats, Keener Farm started a meat CSA providing g grass-fed beef, pastured chicken and eggs, and choice cuts of pork, sausage & bacon from pigs farrowed in a wood lot. We have now expanded into the production of pastured eggs.
