Bird’s Haven Farms is located just five miles north of Granville on Lafayette Rd. Our family farm is now in its 16th season. The farm is family owned by Tom and Ann Bird and operated by youngest son, Lee Bird. Lee is a graduate of The Ohio State University and returned to manage the farm in 2005. Youngest daughter Bryn has also recently returned to the farm to continue in growing the marketing operation and help streamline management practices. With the average age of the American farmer reaching 58, Lee and Bryn are paving the way for a future and younger generation of farmers. Our family is committed to staying on the family’s land and working to create a viable business to support our growing family.
Bird’s Haven Farms is committed to only selling what we grow. Other farmers are comfortable with buying produce at large auctions to help supplement their own harvest, but here at Bird’s Haven Farm we believe the customer has the right to know where and how their produce is grown. We believe you cannot ensure quality and control unless you know exactly how the produce was raised from seed. Our farm, while not certified organic, practices sustainable agriculture growing on plastic to negate the need for herbicides and use manure as fertilizer. We do not spray any of our produce unless facing a crop loss and we are always willing to honestly answer any question about how our produce has been raised.
We are also able to
offer an extended season with our produce through the use of
high-tunnels. These unheated greenhouse-like structures keep the
temperature high enough to have tomatoes as early as May and lettuce
