Farm to Table
Meet Ohio farmers, try delicious recipes and discover how Farm Bureau members are working to keep our tables full and communities strong. Throughout the state, agriculture is a critical part of Ohio’s economy and touches our lives every day.
Did you know that one in every eight Ohioans is connected to farming or production in some way? Many of our members, especially our Young Agricultural Professionals, are part-time farmers, who can be found everywhere from classrooms and veterinary offices to state parks and food processing companies. Ohio Farm Bureau is constantly adapting to support the changing needs of agriculture across our state. In addition to traditional operations, agriculture in Ohio is diverse. Our members include niche farming, such as producers of hops and Ohio maple syrup, to agribusiness professionals in trucking, biofuels, farm lending and more.
As the landscape continues to evolve, it’s an exciting time to be involved in agriculture in Ohio. Farm Bureau is committed to supporting the next generation of farmers and helping our members succeed, just as we have been doing for the past hundred years.
We work together to help people, families and neighbors get things done to build stronger communities, protect farms and support local foods. Explore the ways that Ohio Farm Bureau is working from farm to table through our stories in Buckeye Farm News and Our Ohio, listen to the Our Ohio Weekly podcast and discover what’s in season for your next trip to the farmers market.
