Family fun and a connection to rural Ohio are just two of the many reasons for visitors to stop by the Land and Living exhibit at the Ohio State Fair, July 23 to Aug. 3. Presented by Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF), the exhibit demonstrates agriculture’s link to everyday life.

Visitors to the exhibit, located in the Nationwide Donahey Ag & Hort building, can participate in a variety of activities such as taking a ride in a virtual combine harvester simulator, watching chicks and turkeys hatch, and dogs from local animals shelters and rescues. Children can ride a pedal tractor through the OFBF Country Cruise while adults can take a stroll to learn about Ohio crops, animals and other important areas of Ohio agriculture. Families also can capture their fair experience with a souvenir picture, compliments of Farm Bureau.

The Land and Living display will showcase many new exhibits including the Country Connection stage with demonstrations such as container gardening, sheep shearing, agriscience experiments and animals from the Columbus Zoo.

Keep up to date with what's happening before, during and after the fair as our interns share their experience in the 2014 Ohio State Fair Land & Living Blog.
