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.

Finger Painting in Plein Air at the Market

Last Tuesday the sun was blazing extra hot, maybe it was a last ditch effort to claim its sky before the storms that were brewing made the scene on Wednesday night. 

NorthSide Farmers Market had a great turnout of people braving the heat to support local growers and bakers. It was a fun day.

This young artist joined the make-it/take it table. Even if the day had been dreary and cloudy, this young miss would have cheered everyone's spirits. Her yellow and white outfit was a perfect match for the yellow and white paint that was provided for flower pot decorating.  I love her sunglasses!
