About Us

Saltzgiver Family Farm is a small-scale diversified vegetable farm in Ontario, Ohio.   We grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that are free from herbicides, pesticides, fungicides,  and chemical fertilizers.  We strive to grow fresh, local food that is good for us, good for the soil, and good for the community.

We began vegetable gardening in 2004 and have slowly transitioned to small-scale commercial production.  Along the way our three children have eaten foods straight from the garden that would have otherwise been ignored, witnessed how fresh food is grown and harvested, and have become helpers in our market garden.


During the 2016 season you can find us at the Shelby Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m – 12:00 and at the Alta West Greenhouse Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 2-5 p.m.

Our produce is also available weekly with a CSA membership.  Click here to go to our CSA information page to learn more: CSA Information
