Who We Are

The past few years, the area where I live, Crawford County, Ohio, has seen a wonderful explosion of younger families who are embracing the joys and challenges of living off the land. Because of them, amazing things are happening which have been embraced by our community. Farmer’s markets have been created and on-farm stores have opened. Families dedicated to growing organic produce and naturally raised meats are meeting the public’s needs for locally raised foods. And at the heart of this movement are the women.

Ohio Country Journal is my attempt to share the essence of farm life, focusing on, but not limited to, women. My goal is to bring you into our circle of friendship by inviting you to share your stories and experiences with us. You don’t have to be a full time country woman to benefit from joining us; you just have to be you.

The full-time country women featured in Ohio Country Journal are an inspiration to anyone who dares to follow her dreams, whether it is to live in the country or to bring the country life-style to their urban neighborhoods.

A New Day, a New Year!


It's here! A brand new day and a brand new year. I can hardly wait to read the words that will fill this blog in the next 364 days.
My yard is full of birds, the most flamboyant being Northern Cardinals. This one seems to be in deep reflexion of the events of 2012. Or maybe it is just bracing itself against the wind and snow. Either way, it is a welcome addition to life here on Nazor Rd.
I am planning a quiet day for today which will include stops to my favorite nature spots. However you are spending your day, I wish you peace and happiness.
