In 1975, David Wingenfeld purchased a farm on Tinkers Creek Road, in the heart of the Cuyahoga Valley. It became known as Swan Farm, and with the Erie Canal, Cuyahoga River and Tinkers Creek close by, the soil was perfect and he began his dream of farming. Always sticking to organic gardening guidelines, the small vegetable farm grew into a year round operation that over years sold local residents fresh vegetables, trees, pumpkins and herbs. The first year of Cut Your Own Tree was in 1995 and to this day still offers cut your own as well as pre-cut trees.
Children have been visiting the farm on field trips for over 20 years and in 2009 the Wingenfeld family extended their farm into the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. They were given the opportunity to continue farming at the Gleeson Farm, down the street from Swan Farm. Thanks to the Countryside Conservancy Initiative this farm has become Canal Corners Farm & Market. The Wingenfelds will continue to bring area residents, National Park visitors and local restaurants the freshest organic produce, while sticking to sustainable practices to preserve the natural beauty of the Cuyahoga Valley.
