History of Litzenberg Farms
Located in the “Heart of Ohio,” we are a sixth-generation family farm that now focuses on preserving the foundational pillars of agriculture while continuing to build a legacy for future generations. Our family farm can be traced back to 1866 . In 2021, the Litzenberg Farm was designated as both a "Century Farm" and “Sesquicentennial Family Farm” through the Ohio Historic Farms Program.
Throughout the generations the farm has sustained a variety of types of livestock and farming practices. In recent generations the dairy operation was the main operation focusing on raising registered quality Ayrshire cattle.
In 2011, Richard Jr. moved onto the farm with his wife and now two children. They farm row crops and quality hay as well as a growing flock of registered Katahdin sheep that focuses on providing high quality maternal traits and parasite resilience. They strive to ensure that the farm remains a sustainable operation for both the community and future generations.
