We are excited for the 2021 release of the second edition of the Northeast Counties Buy Local Directory that will cover Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake and Trumbull counties. The directory will not only benefit the residents by providing them with contacts for locally sourced goods and services, but it opens up a valuable marketing tool for members, offering an additional member benefit.
Northeast Counties Buying Local Directory Opportunities
The directories will be distributed at all of the Farm Bureau events throughout the year in each of the counties, including county fairs, annual meetings, trade shows, health fairs and more. The directory will also be available online and will be mailed to approximately 4,000 Farm Bureau member families in Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, and Trumbull counties.
- Goods and Services Listings: Farm Bureau members in Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, and Trumbull counties can list their goods and services in the directory. The first three categories are FREE and additional categories are $5 each. These listings are for Farm Bureau members only
- Paid advertising spaces: These advertisements provide additional space to promote a member’s business and are available in quarter page increments (¼ page, ½ page or full page). Ad space is limited and will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis. Farm Bureau membership is not required for paid advertising, however, Farm Bureau members save at least $100.

Local Member Benefits Opportunities
As part of the benefit of being a Farm Bureau member in Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake or Trumbull counties, the organization offers its members national, state and local discount programs. At the national and state levels, the discounts include hotel savings, equipment discounts, etc.
Local Member Discounts: At the local level, Farm Bureau members can receive discounts and other benefits from local restaurants, stores, theaters, events, businesses and more. The benefits are redeemable when members present their current Farm Bureau membership card. Northeast Counties Farm Bureau is currently expanding its local member benefits program and is inviting you to participate by offering a local member benefit to Farm Bureau members from your business. Some businesses offer a discount off of every purchase ranging from 5% up to 30%. Others offer a buy-one, get-one program, or other promotion. Providers set the benefit they are comfortable offering; Farm Bureau will promote your business and the member benefit you provide. There is no additional cost to participate!
