Flint Quarry at Nether's Farm

This farm is on Ohio's Flint Ridge. You can park and hike back to a series of small "quarries" where you can dig for flint, sparkly minerals, and gemstones. You check in at the farmhouse, go dig, and come back to pay your entry fee and a set rate per pound of stone that you haul out with you. We found lots of nice flint pieces suitable for tools, and many sparkly stones.

Flint Ridge is known for its multicolored flint, and the farm hosts an annual "Knap-In" festival for flint knappers -- people who quarry flint and then chip it into pointy things.
