GROWING IN MOTHER NATURE’S BEST INTEREST.
In 2014, Chef Ben Bebenroth moved his family of four to Spring Hill Farm (now Spice Acres). His vision? Forge a deeper bond between chefs and seasons, connecting the culinary teams at Spice Kitchen + Bar and Spice Catering Co. directly to the farm’s evolving harvest. Connect the community to the source of its food through a carefully selected, unique variety of crops for farm share customers, and open the farm to guests seeking meaningful learning experiences around local, nutrient-dense food.
Spice Acres has become an experience-based entity, affording guests the opportunity to get their hands dirty and learn the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of sustainable agriculture – or simply to celebrate life’s momentous occasions in our historic barn, surrounded by the natural beauty of Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Spice Acres is a unique gem in the country. It’s one of only 11 farms that are part of a farm-leasing program in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park called the Countryside Initiative. Managed in partnership with the Countryside Conservancy, it is the only program in the country that conserves National Park land through sustainable farming.
