Tea Hills Farm
It’s not Thanksgiving without the main course – the turkey! Tea Hills Farm located in Loundonville, Ohio which practices sustainable agriculture and environmentally friendly farming practices. As they say when you purchase products from Tea Hill, “you are supporting small farmers, safeguarding the environment, promoting animal welfare, and eating food that is nutritious, wholesome, and delicious.” You can order and pick-up your turkey for your holiday at a number of locations in the area.
Brimfield Bread Oven
If you haven’t visited Brimfield Bread Oven yet – you’re missing out! Brimfield Bread Oven is a European style bakery in Brimfield Township, Ohio. Everything they make is made from scratch with simple ingredients, hand-shaped and baked in an off-grid, wood-fired oven.

The shop is offering everything from stuffing bread to rolls to baguettes to a number of other delicious breads. Trust us you don’t want to miss out. You can visit their website to see the number of Thanksgiving inspired breads offered and order.
Lake Erie Creamery
It’s not a meal without cheese. Lake Erie Creamery is a small urban creamery in the city of Cleveland specializing in making artisan goat and cow milk cheeses. We’re obsessed with their Lake Erie Pearls which are hand-rolled chevre rounds in rosemary olive oil.
Platform Brewing Company
Platform Brewing Company is located in Ohio City but can also be found in a number of local grocery stores in the area. Their styles range from new American styles to experimental sours and Barrel Aged beers. We highly suggest their Esther Beer which has flavors of dark fruits, baking spices, and honey.
After a great meal there’s nothing like a cup of coffee and dessert. Visit local coffee shop Heartwood Roastery to pick-up a bag of their delicious coffee beans. Oh and did we mention a portion of their profits go back to the community to plant trees? Enjoy a cup of coffee while helping the planet.
Luna Bakery Cafe
It’s not a meal without dessert and we couldn’t forget to mention one of our favorite bakeries, Luna Bakery Cafe. They are selling a number of delicious sweet including pies, tarts, sticky buns, cupcakes and sugar cookies to name a few. They even have these adorable personalized cookie table place cards.
