Meet the Team
Owner, operator, and Farmer-in-Chief Samantha Steiner founded Dogwood Farm in 2010 to provide the northern Cincinnati, Ohio area all natural, locally raised meats and eggs. Her passion in farming stemmed from her upbringing as a fourth generation farmer. Growing up on a dairy farm, Samantha learned the responsibilities and importance of humane animal treatment and natural foods. Her holistic agriculture approach provides her livestock a stress free environment and leaves a positive impact on the land.
Maricela Nickell is essential to the daily Dogwood operations. Maricela makes sure that we all stay focused and on schedule with our farming commitments. Maricela loves getting dirty and working outdoors....well, expect for on the frigid winter days maybe.
Jennifer Hoban takes on the challenge of marketing and communications for Dogwood Farm. Jennifer loves talking with customers and answering their questions.

As Chief Guard Dog, lets be honest....Banks is the one who is really in charge. Banks loves to go for rides on the farm equipment, roll around in the mud, dig in the dirt, and smell everything he possible can. Banks is a very friendly dog, so if you ever see him when you stop by the farm, don't hesitate to say hi.
