a novel exploration of regenerative health and agriculture
What we do
Resilient Acres is located on 122 acres* of fields, streams, and forests in Northeast Ohio (Chardon). Since 2014, Christine & Michael have developed their original 23 acres into a homestead-style farm with permaculture gardens, a hugelkultur orchard, chickens, bees, goats, and succesional perennial polycultures. As the vision expanded to include the creation of more opportunities for others to make a meaningful change in our world, a contiguous 98 acre century farm came up for sale.
This pristine century farm was owned by a single family for the past 100 years. Originally it was a dairy farm with a large barn, several unique century homes and other out buildings, as well as a sugar maple grove tucked within its 70 acres of woods, and a 1- acre pond. For most of its recent years, it served as a country retreat for the family until the caretaker moved, at which point the family decided to sell. The land was bought in the late summer of 2018 and would become Resilient Acres.
Although the overall vision for the land is broad and multi-faceted, the focus is decidedly on health and wellness. The health of humans across the lifespan. The health of ecosystems. As well as all of the many factors that influence health. *We respectfully acknowledge and respect that this land was once cared for by Iroquois’ peoples. We welcome the participation of Native individuals who would like to be involved or help restore this land.
