Here’s our #WomeninAg spotlight of the week, featuring Tracy Emrick. This story comes from the Our Ohio archives (Feb. 2014). As Tracy said, “much has changed since then but I am more committed than ever to address our industry’s common and critical challenges like growing new farmers and stopping the hemorrhaging of Ohio’s farmland, both in my work at Countryside Conservancy and as a volunteer of Summit County Farm Bureau and Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.”

Our most popular story of the week highlights pumpkin farm field trip destinations throughout Ohio. Find a farm to visit in your area!
