Case Western Reserve University Farm is a multiuse facility rich in its 400 acres of fields, prairies, ravines, hills, waterfalls, and pristine forest, not to mention its historical buildings. It is situated a mere 10 miles from the campus proper; close enough for the hundreds of researchers, students, and professors alike to make the short trip out to this verdant oasis.
Author Bio: Case Western Reserve University: Squire Valleevue and Valley Ridge Farms was written by current farm director Ana B. Locci and current farm horticulturist Chris Bond. The photographs herein tell the story of each farmís respective evolution from gentlemanís hobby farms, to the field station for Case Western Reserve Universityís biological and ecological research, and onto its current initiatives of sustainability and environmentally responsible land stewardship. These historical images, some of which are over a century old, were culled from a variety of sources: the universityís and the farmís archival material, the Western Reserve Historical Society, the generosity of the living heirs of the original occupants, as well as from the heirs of those who helped to work these farms in their heyday.
