In many ways, Freedom Farms isn't your typical American farm. In 2009, brothers Joe, Tim, and Pete King founded Freedom Farms and reunited their entire family—nine brothers, a sister, and mother "Mama Bear" Lisa—on the property to run the land. If that sounds familiar, that's because Freedom Farms has its own reality show, "Farm Kings" on GAC, based on the day-to-day lives of the family.
As unconventional as Freedom Farms might seem on paper, its origins are fairly traditional. The King kids grew up on a family farm and today work toward connecting their community with local food. For passers-by, Freedom Farms has become a neighborhood stop for just that. Since opening, the property has grown to feature markets and even a sandwich and a donut shop. The family even publishes a monthly magazine so fans can check out the family's recipes, gardening tips, and keep up with all the show's happenings.
Formerly a private course for more than 50 years, Oakview Golf Club now welcomes the public to take on its lengthy, 6,098-yard layout. The course nestled in Butler County features immaculate bentgrass fairways that veer through tree lines of a dense forest. The golf course demands that golfers not only demonstrate distance and control but also the ability to look both ways when crossing the street in search of a wayward tee shot or a pet headcover that has run away. The club's strong membership base keeps greens buzzing with local loyalists well into the season.
Course at a Glance:
18-hole, par 70 course
Total length of 6,098 yards from the back tees
Course rating of 70.4 from the back tees
Course slope of 124 from the back tees
Penn's Colony Event Grounds host a duo of festivals during the year, beginning with the semi-annual Wine Time tasting event in June. The annual Penn's Colony Festival, which is held in September, replicates an early American colonial village with lively 18th-century bagpipe music, French and Indian War battle reenactments, and interactive activities such as basket-weaving and nine-pin bowling. More than 180 artisans congregate at the sprawling, tree-shaded colonial village, setting up booths with furniture, art, and gifts. Meanwhile, local gourmet-food vendors hawk smoked sausages, apple dumplings, and beef stew. Throughout the year, the colony's grounds are available for special events such as antique shows, retreats, and weddings, at which unruly uncles can be confined in a pillory.
