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.

Planting a Tree

A few days ago  I tagged along with Jim when he went to deliver a red oak tree for a customer. Her grandson had already dug the hole, and the deal was that Jim was only to deliver the tree, as they were not able to pick it up at our nursery. Well, this is how Jim is: while he was explaining how to plant the tree to the homeowner, he ended up doing most of the work. No extra charge.

The only thing left for the grandson to do was to finish filling in the hole with the dirt he had removed.

Question. Have you ever gotten this kind of service from a big-box store?

Didn't think so.
