Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF) and The Longaberger Company have partnered to create a commemorative canning basket featuring Farm Bureau’s consumer brand Our Ohio. From April 1 to Nov. 8, anyone visiting Longaberger Homestead will have the opportunity to make their own Our Ohio Basket or purchase a pre-made version handcrafted by Longaberger Basketmakers.
The Our Ohio basket will feature red and orange splints with a silver Our Ohio tag. The Our Ohio basket debuted at the Ohio Farm Bureau Annual Meeting last December. The basket is $62.95 plus tax.
Also, Ohio Farm Bureau members can expect additional member-only benefits while visiting Longaberger Homestead. OFBF members who show their membership card will receive a free plastic protector with the purchase of the basket. During the month of May, OFBF members also can receive a 10 percent discount on any purchase at the Homestead, with the exception of food and gift certificates.
“We’re excited to partner with a great Ohio company,” said Cara Lawson, promotion specialist for Ohio Farm Bureau. “Showcasing Our Ohio on the canning basket is fitting, too, given our members’ connection to local foods and growing.”
