We are thrilled to announce the launch of the 2021-22 Central Ohio Buy Local Directory for Delaware, Franklin, Madison and Union counties.
The directory will reach over 7,000 member families and will be distributed at each county’s Farm Bureau events year-round. It not only provides residents a resource for local goods and services, but it also opens a valuable marketing platform for local producers and provides another benefit for Farm Bureau members.
Central Ohio Buy Local Directory Opportunities
The directory will be available at every Farm Bureau event throughout the year, including county fairs, annual meetings, trade shows and more. It will also be available online, promoted on social media and mailed to every Farm Bureau member family in Delaware, Franklin, Madison and Union counties.
- Goods and services listings: Farm Bureau members in Delaware, Franklin, Madison and Union counties can list their goods and services in the directory. The first three categories are FREE, with additional categories being $5 each. These listings are for Farm Bureau members only.
- Paid advertising spaces: These advertisements provide additional space to promote your business and are available in quarter page increments (1⁄4 page, 1⁄2 page or full page). Ad space is limited and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. You do not need to be a Farm Bureau member for paid advertising, but members save at least $100. Contact us at (800) 451-8908 or visit this page if you are interested in becoming a member!
Local Member Benefits Opportunities
As a Farm Bureau member, you have access to numerous national, state and local discount programs. At the national and state level, members can save on hotels, equipment and many more.
- Local member discounts: At the local level, Farm Bureau members can receive discounts and other benefits from local restaurants, stores, events, businesses and more. The benefits are redeemable when members present their current Farm Bureau membership card. We are currently expanding our local member benefits program and are inviting you to participate by offering a local member benefit to Farm Bureau members from your business. You set the benefit you are comfortable offering; we will promote your business and the member benefit you provide. There is no additional cost to participate!
You can digitally complete your listing here.
We look forward to working with you and meeting our members’ needs in 2021! In order to be included, all information and payments are due June 25, 2021.
Please contact the Central Ohio Farm Bureaus office with questions via [email protected] or (800) 451-8908.
