New Local Dining Directory
A new addition to the Buying Local Directory is now available. Restaurants that purchase locally grown products and serve them on their menu are now eligible to be listed as part of the Buying Local Directory. Restaurants must be current Farm Bureau members to participate.
If farmers are selling their products to local restaurants, consider asking the restaurant owners to participate in the Buying Local Directory. The enrollment form is available at OurOhio.org, click on “Resources” then “Register a Restaurant,” or contact your county Farm Bureau office for a paper enrollment form. If the restaurant owners aren’t Farm Bureau members, they can join at GrowWithFB.org
