Hale Farm & Village captures the story of the Hale Family and their 200 year old family farm nestled in the Cuyahoga Valley.

Today, the InHale strategic initiative encourages guests to craft the entrepreneurial spirit, steward a commitment to preserving the cultural landscape and sustain social and financial impact through a hand crafted way of life.

For almost 60 years, guests have come to learn, experience and explore the historic buildings, farm & horticulture and craft & trade venues.
InHale’s mission is to preserve and share the story of the Western Reserve through an experiential learning community that creates a lifetime of social value.

While visiting Hale Farm & Village, each day you’ll be able to catch some InHale experiences such as:

  • Barn to Barn: Daily feeding and farm chores
  • Apple Hale: The daily life of a local farmer
  • Get Growing: Cultivating community through gardening
  • Sound of the Farmyard: Livestock, literacy and learning

The Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation is a major supporter of the InHale initiative.
