This is an exciting time for the Berry Barn as we are adding many improvements that will allow us to use the barn for a wide range of activities. While improvements are underway, we will be open when conditions permit. For up-to-date information, check the signboard at the front of our parking lot or contact us by telephone.
We'll also be having some barn-raising events, during which a group of volunteers will be at work on construction and carpentry tasks. During those times, we'll be closed for business -- but if you want to lend a helping hand, give us a call!
Even when berries are not in season, we offer jars of the toppings we make from the fresh berries and use in our own Pastry Mill.
Farm Fresh Fare
We offer cooked-to-order our own fresh, farm-raised steak burgers and sausage, served with a variety of condiments. Add freshly cut potato fries or grilled peppers and onions to make a hearty meal. If you're looking for comfort food, try our home-style chicken and noodles as an entree or as a side dish.
The Pastry Mill
For dessert or a light snack, try our freshly made French waffles, funnel cakes, or baby elephant ears.
Our pastries include flour that is made right here from scratch. Ohio winter wheat is grown on the Marshall Family farm, and once the wheat and tares are separated, the wheat is ground into flour. This is done right before your eyes using an antique John Deere hit-and-miss engine.
To make our French waffles and other pastries even more delicious, you can add your choice of strawberry or raspberry fruit topping. The fruit was picked here on the Marshall Family farm and made into topping, following a special recipe, at a locally owned cannery.
During the autumn season, depending on current conditions, a variety of produce and activities may be available at the Berry Barn. Check our signboard or telephone for up-to-date information.
Pumpkin Hunt, Gourds, Mini-Pumpkins and Mums
In the autumn, we may have pumpkins, both large and small, waiting for you at the Berry Barn. When pumpkins are available, you can select a housebroken pumpkin from our store, or visit our pumpkin patch and hunt down a wild one.
Silly gourds, mini-pumpkins and gorgeous mums also may available in a range of colors to add a touch of fall to your decor.
Heart of Ohio Trail
Park at our barn, ride on the bike trail and eat fresh sausage or hamburgers afterwards! Make a day of it for the whole family!
Our hay rides are a favorite among the young and young at heart. Groups of all sizes are welcome, from Scouts to Church groups. The Berry Barn provides a wonderful weekend afternoon for families of all age groups and sizes. Schedule them ahead of time for a group.
Decorative Corn Stalks
During the autumn, we sometimes have decorative corn stalks for sale. Add a special seasonal touch to your home or garden by combining these with a couple of our pumpkins or with your own fall harvest.
If you are interested in a particular activity, please call ahead to make sure it will be available during the time of your visit.
Our activities are geared to provide fun for nature enthusiasts, families with children, and people of all ages and abilities. We also have experience planning events for groups with special needs. Give us a call if you'd like to plan a special Berry Barn outing for your family or group.
Group events at the Berry Barn can be customized to your needs. For example, your group can visit our farm animal petting zoo, take a walk along the scenic Heart of Ohio trail that runs through our property, pick your own berries or pumpkins, then sample our fresh French waffles. We offer a variety of food packages from our Country Kitchen, ranging from a hot beverage or light snack to a more complete meal. We also can provide and set up sound equipment.
