Out and about

Ohio Farm Bureau staff and volunteers took part in the Ohio Produce Growers & Marketers Association Congress in January. Farm Bureau members had the opportunity to update their profiles on the Our Ohio Buying Local Directory, renew their Farm Bureau membership, learn more about OFBF member benefits and pick up $2,500 reward signs.

Survey results

A survey of 413 visitors to the Our Ohio display at the Fabulous Food Show in Cleveland Nov. 14 to 16 shows 61 percent were familiar with Our Ohio and 52 percent said Our Ohio helps them better understand Ohio farms and food topics. Nearly half said they were familiar with Our Ohio magazine and 50 percent said they live in a suburban area. Eighty-nine percent of visitors were not Farm Bureau members, so participating in these types of events is an effective way to reach the public with information about Farm Bureau and Our Ohio. Of those who are not Farm Bureau members, 48 percent said they were interested in more membership information.

Ag Day events

If county Farm Bureaus are hosting Ag Day events open to the public, e-mail the event information to info@ourohio.org or complete the events online registration form at www.OurOhio.org. Click on resources, then list an event. This is a great opportunity to promote these events on the Our Ohio Web site.
