Gallant Farm in Troy Township is a representation of a Depression-era farm, and includes a farmhouse with period furnishings, a barn with historic 1890s timbers, a granary, machine shed and barnyard, demonstration crop fields, vegetable garden, orchard, and pond. Visitors encounter costumed interpreters completing their daily chores — plowing the fields, tending the garden, or cooking on a wood-burning stove. There is no charge to visit Gallant Farm, and no reservation is necessary (except for large groups and field trips); occasionally, programs will carry a small fee.
While pets are not allowed at Gallant Farm, service animals ARE allowed. The farmhouse is handicapped accessible.
Gallant Farm was purchased in 2003, with funds obtained through a grant from the CleanOhio Fund.
Programs at the farm are designed to transport visitors to an earlier era. Visitors learn how to preserve produce from the garden, make sausage, prepare the garden for planting, or use the wood stove to make soups and pies — among many other activities.
Special events take place annually, including Maple Syrup Time, an Antique Tractor Show, Music under the Paper Moon, and Winter Evening on the Farm. Tours are self-guided, with staff and volunteers on hand to provide information about the era.
School and community groups should contact education staff to schedule programs and field trips. Call 740-362-0274 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
