The Johnnie Mae Farm is a partnership between the City of Fort Wayne’s Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services and the Purdue Extension - Allen County Office.

In 2015, OHNS completed the historic renovation of former fire station #9, 2518 Winter St., and it became home to the Johnnie Mae Farm. The name pays tribute to long-time neighborhood advocate Johnnie Mae White.

The building is home to a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, which is available for rent or to community groups.
