Fulton Creek Organic Farm is a small family farm just outside Delaware, Ohio, serving the Delaware and Clintonville farmers’ markets. We grow a variety of vegetables from year-to-year, with a focus on head lettuce, beets, potatoes, onions, garlic, and pumpkins. We expect to add apples, paw paws, and other fruits in the near future.
We are dedicated to food safety and sustainable and organic practices. We believe that the most efficient agricultural practice makes the most of natural processes, beneficial insects, and locally-available soil amendments. We use spent grains from Olentangy River Brewing Company, organic fertilizers from Ohio Earth Food, cover crops, and mixed-grass mulch from our own farm to build our soil.
We are not certified organic, but try to go beyond organic by excluding any and all harmful chemicals, even approved organics such as pyrethrins and spinosad. We have used substances prohibited by the National Organic Program in the recent past, specifically locally-produced compost containing traces of composted corn- or potato-starch based utensils and non-black inks. No other prohibited substances have been applied at our farm since 2011.
If you have any questions about what or how we grow, please don’t hesitate to call, text, or e-mail.
Fulton Creek Organic Farm is brought to you by Grant and Sam Barnhouse Kibbey, both Ohio natives and graduates of OSU and Miami University, respectively. In addition to growing fine fruits and vegetables, Grant and Sam are growing a young daughter, Brice-Isley, born March 2020; a farm dog named Dahntay easily mistaken for a white fox; and a few chickens, guineafowl, and a crotchety old turkey.
