Introducing Preble Roots Program

If there’s one thing Preble County knows (other than covered bridges), it’s agriculture! Preble Roots is a new movement aimed at providing a simple identification for food items (and other items) grown or produced in Preble County. It’s just getting started, and local food producers can take advantage of this opportunity to be included in a new directory that’ll highlight what Preble County has to offer! Producers of food, fiber and arts (i.e. quilts, soaps, pastas, yarn, etc.) read below for more information on the Preble Roots movement! 

Dear Preble County Producer:

We are excited to announce a new program that will benefit you and the marketing of your products. We would like to introduce PREBLE ROOTS. This is a new branding and marketing opportunity of which you can apply for with the Preble County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) yearly.

Your products must be at least 60 percent raised, grown or produced in Preble County, Ohio in order to participate in PREBLE ROOTS. This includes food, fiber and arts (i.e. quilts, soaps, pastas, yarn, etc.).

The CVB will be sharing with consumers the value of the logo in identifying Preble County’s locally produced products.  In addition, we are in the process of creating a Preble County Farm Products Directory.

This new directory will include your product and contact information. The directory will highlight our Preble County Farmers’ Markets as well as a consumer information chart detailing seasonal availability of fruits and vegetables plus how to identify Preble County’s locally produced products by using the PREBLE ROOTS logo.

If you would like to be included in the Preble County Farm Products Directory and to be able to utilize the PREBLE ROOTS logo, there is a minimal fee of $25 annually.

Please complete the form attached below with your check or money order and send to PREBLE ROOTS, c/o Preble County CVB, P.O. Box 604, Eaton, Ohio 45320 by April 15, 2017.

We hope you are as excited as we are in this opportunity to increase sales and awareness of our Preble County products.
