Welcome to Case-Barlow Farm!
Case-Barlow Farm aims to be a regional model of historic preservation and adaptive reuse. We engage the community in an authentic interactive experience, offering a perspective of events, issues, and people of the Western Reserve from the past to the present. Case-Barlow Farm will connect people with history, arts, and culture. We enhance the educational and cultural offerings of the region, and we captivate the learning mind!
Due to construction, the August Farm Club Movie Night will not be held. Coming Farm Club events: making Ghost Gardens in October, a Turkey Tot Trot in November and an invitation to visit Santa in the Big Red Barn.
Fall Fest September 9
noon to 5:00
The 20th annual Case-Barlow Farm Fall Harvest Fest will delight all ages on Sunday, September 9 from 12 noon to 5:00 pm at the historic farm, 1931 Barlow Road in Hudson. Admission fee of $6 per child and $8 per adult covers all the fun.
New this year is the Wood Shop Committee at Laurel Lake who will be demonstrating and interacting with the guests to use and experience old-fashioned hand saws, planes and various tools used on the farm in early days. Also participating will be the 19th Ohio Light Artillery Civil War unit along with Sue Wheeler, a civil war musician and vocalist. During the American Civil War, music played a prominent role on both sides of the conflict. Music was a diversion away from the bloodshed and tensions that came with fighting.
Favorites of the past years will return for your enjoyment: they include Ride’em & Rope’em, Hudson Hoppers, Feed the Pig, hay wagon rides, horse rides and many farm animals. Also Birds in Flight Raptor Center will showcase rescued wildlife birds and Herps Alive will be an interactive reptile and amphibian experience not to be missed.
Farm house tours and demonstrations of old-fashion crafts such as weaving, quilling, chair canning, seat weaving, bread making, and rug hooking. The quilt show features various patterns and techniques.
Refreshments for purchase include hot dogs, cookies, snacks, and ice cones, drinks and, of course, the famous Case Barlow Farm Root Beer floats.

A Summer Afternoon in the Dog Days of Summer
The ancient Romans called the hottest, most humid days of summer “diēs caniculārēs" or “dog days." The name came about because they associated the hottest days of summer with the star Sirius. Sirius was known as the “Dog Star" because it was the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major (Large Dog).
Make the most of your Dog Day with a relaxing afternoon enjoying old-time games like Shut the Box and croquet, fresh vegetables from the garden, a weaving demonstration, a doll display, PUP (Pick Up Poop) info and the music from the Flat Five Jazz. And enjoy it all with a CBF Root Beer Float!
