At Mattie's Mountain Farm, we provide exceptional stewardship of the forest and the wildlife that call it home. Our trees showcase the beauty of a mixed and diverse amount of hardwood tree species that are native to southeastern Ohio.
Honeybees help in the pollination of certain tree species and flowers. An important byproduct of the honeybee is the honey they produce. Mattie's Mountain Farm is in the process of establishing a honeybee apiary at the farm.
Don and Becky Muth are the second generation owners of the land that comprises Mattie's Mountain Farm. They acquired the land from Becky’s parents in 1990 and developed it into a farm that promotes wildlife and habitat conservation, managed forestry and lavender. The Muth's named Mattie's Mountain Farm in honor of Becky's mother, Mattie McCreery.
