Celeryville is a unique agricultural community. The soil of farmlands is muck. It is so rich that several years ago it caught fire. Farmers are able to grow vegetables much faster than other areas and can get one or two extra crops in a growing season. Ohio State University maintains an agricultural extension there. Migrant workers come yearly to tend and harvest the crops.[citation needed]
