About Soluna Farm and Ranch
Soluna Farm is a 13 acre tract of land in Auburn, Twp, Ohio, approximately 25 miles east of Cleveland. When the farm was purchased in 2017, the land was overgrown, there were piles of debris everywhere, and the idea of growing anything seemed like a 10-year plan.
After months of hard work, the land started to show its potential. Nearly 8 tons of scrap metal had been taken to the local scrap yard, lots of dead trees had been cut and removed, and a bulldozer cleared the signs of decades of neglect. What was left was the foundation of a farm.
By May of 2018, the barn, which is the centerpiece of Soluna Farm's operation was in place, and is now the home of the farms laying hens, goats, and the future home of the hogs and Highland heifers.
As the farm operation expands, like it has with the Soluna Cattle Ranch, Soluna Farm, on Munn Road will remain the centerpiece of the business operations, and the place where we gather to celebrate quality, natural production of food with our friends and neighbors.
