April 2015 Profiles

One of the latest trends in food is the concept of eating local, or buying food from nearby sources. With about 74,000 farms in the Buckeye State, Ohioans who want to eat local have a great selection to choose from. Agriculture is Ohio’s largest industry, and this April, we are profiling some of the companies that make Ohio one of the nation’s leaders in agriculture. This month’s companies even include two farms with the Ohio Century Farms designation, a program through the Ohio Department of Agriculture that is awarded to families who have owned the same farm for at least 100 consecutive years.

These nine companies are just some of the many farms across our state that have earned Ohio its place among our nation’s leaders in agriculture. Because of the work of farms like these, our state is a little greener and the food on our tables doesn’t have to travel so far.
