Our homegrown treasures

. September 27, 2012.

Agriculture is the number one industry in the area — and, more importantly, mealtime would be dramatically different without it. Take the opportunity to share the wonder of farming with your kids, as the Hancock County Farm Bureau presents this year’s Hancock County Farm Tour. You don’t have to join a group or get on a bus — it’s a self-directed, self-driven day of discovery, in which nine local farms open their doors and fields to visitors eager to learn. See the source of a diverse array of products, from apples to horses to Christmas trees — even some Ohio-raised bison! It’s a great way to foster a real connection with the land and the people who work it.
