About the Farm

The University Farm is comprised of several historic properties known as Squire Valleevue Farm and Valley Ridge Farm. This campus is a beautiful 400-acre property that features forests, ravines, waterfalls, meadows, ponds, and a self-contained natural watershed.

Owned by CWRU, the Farm is the site of several buildings designed for educational, research, and recreational purposes.

It is open and available to all current CWRU students, faculty, staff, and alumni from dawn to dusk, seven days a week, for hiking and by reservation for special event rentals, Mondays - Saturdays.

Our Annual Reports provide additional information on usage figures, finances and farm operations.


The goal of the University Farm is to enhance and complement the university's mission of education, research and community service through its unique natural settings, history and cultural features. The Farm also supports and enhances additional university community activities, including athletics and recreational events.
