Treehouse Organics

Treehouse Organics is a Northeast Ohio based co-operative of local organic farmers, master gardeners, green growers, bee keepers, and craftspeople that are dedicated to offering the highest quality of organically grown foods, both fresh and preserved.
Founded informally in 1993 on just two small homesteads, we have grown to include members in Medina, Summit, Stark, Portage, and Carrol counties. this brings our privately owned operation to in excess of 200,000 square feet in urban, suburban, and rural areas.

We have never in the past, nor will we in the future, use any type of insecticide, pesticide, herbacide, or artificial/chemical soil enhancers. Neither do we add any type of unnecessary synthetic preservatives, sweeteners, salt or chemicals to our preserved products. What is on the label is exactly what is inside and nothing more.

 Our crafts and paper products are made from both recycled and 100% organically grown products within a 60 mile radius of Akron, Ohio. Ours is a labor of love for what nature has provided - sunlight, rain, and fertile soil.

All of our products are produced the old fashioned way - one at a time with an eye on quality not quantity. Our fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices are harvested at their peak and offered fresh or processed immediately. If for any reason you are ever unsatisfied with any product, we will gladly replace, refund or exchange it, with no questions asked - ever. We are passionate about our ability to provide the very best, pure organic products at the lowest possible price to you - our friends and customers.

We welcome your thoughts, ideas, suggestions, and comments. If we have done it right, or wrong, please let us know. We are often asked if we accept barter asa medium of exchange. Our answer is a resounding YES! Ours is a labor of love for what nature has provided - sunlight, rain, and fertile soil.

All local deliveries are free of charge.

Dry Creek Valley Farm is located in central Ohio, 30 miles east of Columbus.
They offer grass fed and finished beef from their herd of Red Angus cows. The calves they market receive nothing but grass and grass hay in the winter. No grain, no hormones or antibiotics at any time. We market the calves in the spring and fall at the end of the best grass growth. This is when the calves are gaining well and will marble for a great eating experience. They sell whole, halves or split halves cut to your specifications.
The entire farm was converted to grass in 1996. The cattle are rotated through 29 paddocks for a fresh salad bar every day. They are not certified organic, but there have been no chemicals of any kind or fertilizer applied for over seven years.
We were selected for Conservationist of the Year in Licking County in 2004 and the farm became a Century Farm in 2006.

Boulder Belt Farm ~ Eaton, OH

3257 Route 127 N  

Eaton Ohio 45320-9298


We grow all of our food using sustainable methods. This means no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, ever. We choose to use a holistic approach to our farming that depends on ecological balance and growing great soil. This way of farming may not be as easy as using synthetics but as science is beginning to prove, it makes for tastier and nutrient dense food.

Boulder Belt Eco-Farm Share Initiative
like a CSA only more so...

Growing sustainably is much more than just not using chemical fertilizers and pesticides, it's about growing and caring for the soil through cover cropping/green manures, composting and crop rotation. It means watching the processes that happen in your garden or farm environment.

Hartzler Dairy ~ Wooster, OH

All-Natural Glass Bottle Milk and Butter

5454 Cleveland Rd.
Wooster, Ohio 44691


How to Drink Hartzler Milk
"..The Cream Rises to the top"

Whether you drink it straight from the bottle (we won't tell your mom), or from a favorite glass, there's one thing you need to do first: SHAKE BEFORE DRINKING! That's because our milk is all natural and the cream rises to the top -- that's what makes our milk healthier and tastier than most!

Hartzler dairy provides old fashioned cream-top, hormone-free, milk in glass bottles. Their milk is produced only on family farms that do not use chemicals or hormones in their cows or their crops.

They  are not certified organic - but they have used organic practices in farming since 1964 and their products are all-natural. Hartzler Dairy also produces all-natural roll butter .

Superior Nutrition ...grass fed cows & unhomogenized milk make the difference!

Hartzler’s dairy cows graze freely in pasture and consume healthy, green grass during warm weather months. Milk from grass-fed cows has a higher content of vitamins and Omega-3s,as well as higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid, which have been found to have cancer-fighting properties. In addition, Hartzler milk is not homogenized, leaving milkfat globules intact to carry important nutrients like Vitamins A & D to the body.

Improved Digestion ...low-temperature vat pasteurization preserves enzymes.

Hartzler milk is enzyme-rich due to our low-temperature vat pasteurization process. These enzymes are crucial for digestion, as they assimilate nutrients into the body. Lactase, for example, converts lactose into energy and phosphatase assimilates calcium into our bones.

We are the only dairy in Ohio to pasteurize milk this way. Our process kills harmful bacteria, in compliance with FDA rules, without harming enzymes. Because of this, many people who have been diagnosed as lactose intolerant can drink our milk!

Milk Can Help with Weight Loss

The key to milk as a weight loss aid lies in its calcium content and the body’s ability to absorb this calcium. When the body does not get enough calcium, it begins conserving it. This mechanism prompts your body to produce higher levels of a hormone called calcitriol, which prompts the production of fat cells. Without milk and other dairy products, we send the body a signal to make more fat.

Calcitriol in high levels triggers fat cells to store themselves in the body and to expand. When we increase our calcium levels, calcitriol is suppressed and the opposite happens. Fat cells get broken down and digested and those remaining become smaller. A high-dairy diet can boost weight loss by about 70%.

Hartzler’s milk contains more of the enzyme phosphatase, which assimilates calcium into our bodies and therefore provides the best milk option for weight loss. Our milk has a higher enzyme content due to our unique Low-Temperature Vat Pasteurization method.

While skim milk is commonly thought to be healthier and better for weight loss, the milkfat needed to properly digest enzymes and nutrients has been “skimmed” from it. Whole and 2% milk is a better choice not only for weight loss, but because it carries far more health benefits.

The science behind milk and weight loss makes sense. However, milk cannot do the job alone. Calorie restriction, exercise and proper high-nutrition food choices should lead your weight loss efforts. Thankfully you don’t need to eliminate milk from your diet anymore.
