  • Flowing back in time through two townships

    There’s a lot of history in and around The Quarry Farm, not to mention up the road. On the opposite side of the block stands a log home constructed by Tom McCullough.

  • And, Yes, There Are Rules

    While this space (I’m having a very hard time using the word “blog”; it seems alien to me, like something out of a ’60s sci-fi novel) is designed primarily as a venue to talk about The Quarry Farm and its inhabitants, activities and progress, I want it to behave interactively, need input from elsewhere. Part […]

  • A Brand New Intimidation

    For those of you unfamiliar with The Quarry Farm, we’re a small, nonprofit conservation farm and nature preserve located in Riley Township, Putnam County, Ohio, just about halfway between the villages of Ottawa and Pandora. It’s a family operation, as are most undertakings in this little corner of the state. Taking this whole adventure one step […]
