As we prepare to say goodbye to summer, and the kids go back to school, that means fall is around the corner. It also means that across Ohio, there are opportunities to get out to the farm and enjoy tourism activities.

Below is a list of county Farm Bureau hosted or sponsored events. The list will be updated through October 2022.

Sept. 27
Wine Down at the MAiZE, Milford Center
Wine Down at the MAiZE will feature local wineries, farmers and promote the flourishing agriculture in our county. We are excited for this initiative where all net proceeds will benefit our youth programs and scholarship fund. The evening event is set to take place Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2022. The host for the event is The MAiZE at Little Darby Creek.

Oct. 2
Clermont County Food & Farm Self-Guided Tour
Eight diverse farms and markets have opened their gates and doors for you to experience local agriculture firsthand. Take this opportunity to meet local farmers, taste farm-fresh food, learn stewardship and farm skills from experts, and explore the fields of local farms.

Oct. 8-9
Wayne County Fall Farm Tour, northeast Wayne County
Wayne County Farm Bureau’s annual Farm Tour will take place in the northeast quadrant of the county and will feature seven stops, open from noon to 5 p.m. Booklets containing event details will be available at the Wayne County Fair and online beginning Sept. 9.

Oct. 8-9
Medina County Fall Foliage Tour, various stops in Medina County
Since 1968, the drive-it-yourself Medina County Fall Foliage Tour has educated the participating public about agriculture, education, and history of Medina County. Each year, the tour highlights 10-15 places of interest that can include farms, agribusinesses, historical societies, and special events – among others.

 

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
