Cincinnati Zoo partners with Green B.E.A.N Delivery to bring fresh, locally grown produce

Cincinnati Zoo has a farm in Warren County

MASON - You might not know this but the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden has a farm in Warren County.

The zoo has now teamed up with Green B.E.A.N Delivery to provide fresh, locally grown produce to their customers and to the animals of the Cincinnati Zoo at the EcOhio Farm in Mason.   

Aris Yowell, the Marketing Director at Green B.E.A.N Delivery said, "We just started a few months ago. We've been developing the partnership over the last year and we've had some great produce already."

Green B.E.A.N Delivery is leasing 50 acres of land from the zoo and so far, they've had a successful harvest.

"It's going really well so far.  We've had a great squash harvest.  We've already given that squash to Green B.E.A.N Delivery customers and we're continuing to develop the land and grow more crops here."

If you're interested in getting your hands on some of their organic, locally grown produce, go to the Green B.E.A.N Delivery website here:  http://www.greenbeandelivery.com/cincinnati/
