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.

Taking Care of Business

I have a break in time from fruit and setting up at farmers markets for a couple of weeks, Yellow Transparent and Lodi apples are nearly sold out.  Red pears need a few more weeks to ripen.
This gives me an opportunity to work on promotional materials. Using M.S. Word, today I am designing a brochure. The main purpose is price list and a guide to the uses of the apples we raise. It will also include a couple of recipes.
I have the front of the brochure in a rough draft. Naturally, for some reason my computer isn't playing nice with my scanner, so I am unable at this time to share the brochure here on OCJ.
What I can do is share the clip art apple that I am using. I love it because it is fun and stylistic. What do you think?
