Meadowlake Farm has always been a special place. It is a picturesque and serene 100 acre farm established in the early 1800's as part of the Connecticut Western Reserve by a founding member of the Mormon faith. It was once owned by a homeopathic physician who bottled and sold its artesian spring water and operated Ohio's first nudist camp on the property. The Cleveland Brown's football team who practiced at adjacent Hiram College, played volleyball with the 'campers'. Our great aunt and uncle purchased it in the 1950's at which time it became a gentleman's farm and family retreat. Its interesting and diverse history always focused on health restoration and solitude along with preservation of the natural world, traditions we are proud to uphold today.
