Mount Vernon, OH - Culinary & Medicinal Herbs, Nursery, Salves & Lotions, Soaps
Josh & Becky Wentworth-Kuhn are small scale farmers located in Mount Vernon, Ohio. We practice natural methods on our farm, using no chemicals or unnatural additives. We use good, old-fashioned hard work to produce healthy plants and animals. We are most happy when learning about the old and forgotten uses for both the common place and lesser known herbs, plants, tools, and ways of living.
The name, Bailiwick Farm, came to us when we were just starting our lives together. We knew we wanted to grow, to produce, to raise animals, sculpt, paint, wild-craft, homestead, and give back to the earth, but we couldn’t settle on just one avenue.
In late 2011, we purchased our farm in beautiful Mount Vernon, Ohio. Still struggling with all the ideas in our heads, and the direction we wished to go, we just started building. One project led to another, and another, and still does. As we grow, we find new interests and add them to our life. Now, a few years later, we specialize in naturally grown herbs, plants, and vegetables with an emphasis on healing medicinals. This year we’ve added bees, French angora rabbits, and a flock of super wily free range chickens. Our heirloom fruit trees and berry patches are expanding with the addition of many plants from the Ribe family (such as gooseberries and currants), once banned from Ohio.
