This land has been farmed for more than 100 years, providing dairy cow and Morgan horse pasture, selective and clear-cut logging, and crops of soy, wheat, and corn. Now it welcomes a new era of farm activity that revolves around organic and regenerative practices, both contemporary and ancient.
If you are interested in hosting an event at Bellwether Farm, learn more about the meeting spaces offered on our grounds.
Located in our central dining and meeting building, the Grange will serve campers and other program participants. The room accommodates up to 130 diners, and the full service commercial kitchen can cater large and small groups.
We worked with Ohio Valley Barn Salvage to repurpose a 40' x 64' barn built in 1863 into a place to hold worship services from the late spring to the early fall. However, because the seats are moveable, it makes a great place for meetings and other events.
Pavilion & Recreation Area
Three pavilions are available. The two smaller pavilions have four picnic tables each under cover with the option to add more tables if needed.
The center offers 40 rooms that can be used as either single or double occupancy and 15 seasonal camp cabins that hold 10 people each. We welcome your group, as well as individuals looking for a quiet retreat space.
