Hunting in Northern Ohio would not be possible without the support and generosity of our land owners.  We would very much appreciate if we can return their support of our hunting with the support of their businesses, details of which follow:

Local businesses and land owners of Middlefield Ohio:

Kempf’s Custom Butchering – Amish owned and operated, suppliers of the best cuts of meat for our members and even our hounds!  To order, please call (440)-693-9913 to speak to and place your order with Rudy Kempf.

South Farm – Stables located in Middlefield OH and the location of one of our hunt fixtures and our annual Poker Ride. Known primarily for holding several Combined Tests and Clinics through out the year, they can also offer horse boarding and over night stabling. Contact them directly at 440-346-5138 or for more information.

Stables and Horse Trainers that hunt with the Chagrin Valley Hunt on a regular basis:
