Big Fish Farms

On our Clermont County Board of Trustees, we have several members who have small local ag businesses that we would love to showcase below!

Vista Grand Ranch

In an effort to simplify their lives and improve the quality of living, Clermont County Board Trustee, Cindy Cassell and her husband, David Uible, purchased an old dairy farm on 171 acres in New Richmond, Ohio in 1994. They named it Vista Grand Ranch in keeping with its spectacular vistas. They provide certified American buffalo meat to those around the county! For more information, check out

Flourish and Roam at 1:Nine Ranch

Josh and Sarah Ison own Flourish and Roam at 1:Nine Ranch. They raise Black Angus Cattle, pasture raised hogs and pasture raised chickens that spend their entire lives roaming the rolling, rich, green hills overlooking the Ohio River Valley. Experience the difference in taste when animals and people grow and thrive together in a healthy way as a result of a favorable environment and learn more at

Big Fish Farms

Renee Koerner and her family own and operate Big Fish Farms. At Big Fish Farms they are dedicated to sustainably rearing and ranching the amazing American Paddlefish. Every part of the process, from spawning fry to making caviar, is under their supervision. Almost all “farmed” caviars are made from fish raised in tanks, eating a prepared pelleted diet, but they “ranch” their fish which gives them plenty of room to swim freely with only 10 to 20 fish per water acre. They call it free range caviar. For more information, visit

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

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
With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

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.

Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

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.

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.
