Farm Bureau members Lisa Row-Taylor of Bloomfield Meadows in Centerburg and Christy Hulse of Buckeye Country Creamery in Ashland were winners of the Farm Bureau vendor space giveaway at Farmers Crossing, a new Farm Bureau-sponsored area which was part of the Mid-America Restaurant Expo presented by the Ohio Restaurant Association in January. The Farmers Crossing area was dedicated to local farmers and highlighted the farm-to-table concept.
More on this year’s event can be found on a recent Town Hall Ohio podcast.
“We were pleasantly surprised after we left the show with a large stack of business cards from all different businesses that could help us grow — distributors, restaurants interested in buying our products, business that sell equipment we use, etc. We are always thankful for all Ohio Farm Bureau does for our small business on legislation. Today, we are thankful for thinking outside the box and connecting our farm products to more consumers!” — Christy Hulse
