Restaurants that feature local products
A new addition to the Buying Local Directory at OurOhio.org is a listing of restaurants that offer local products on their menus. Restaurant owners who are members are invited to list their businesses on the Buying Local Directory; the enrollment form is available at OurOhio.org, click on “Resources” then “Register a Restaurant.” This is also an opportunity to invite these businesses to be a part of Farm Bureau so they can participate in this new member benefit.
