For Immediate Release
May 8, 2013
COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) –Ohioans looking to learn about food and farms, excel in the garden, find new recipes or great events and tours can turn to the newly redesigned OurOhio.org website. The website, originally launched by Ohio Farm Bureau in 2005, is a resource for hundreds of thousands of visitors searching for expert information on Ohio food, gardening, cooking and related events, as well as stories about Ohio farmers and information about Ohio-produced agricultural products and businesses.
The new website offers enhanced functionality and features including an upgraded Buying Local Directory, a new video section, easier sharing features, and a direct connection and search function tying in with the ofbf.org website.
Users will be able to search hundreds of markets and locations throughout Ohio as part of the upgraded Buying Local Directory, view an interactive Google map and print directions directly from the page. Each farm or market listing will have its own page listing products for sale, hours and contact information.
“The Our Ohio website is just one of the ways Our Ohio tries to connect farmers and consumers,” said Ohio Farm Bureau’s Vice President of Communications Pat Petzel. “We are always looking for ways to tell stories, answer consumer questions and provide engagement opportunities such as events and tours where farmers can interact with their customers and fellow Farm Bureau members.”
An Ohio Farm Bureau membership is the best way to receive ongoing information about Ohio food, agriculture, gardening and events. Join by calling 1.888.GrowWithFB or visiting GrowWithFB.org.
Our Ohio is an effort to help further Ohio Farm Bureau’s mission of forging a partnership between farmers and consumers and is supported by Nationwide Insurance.
