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.

Sweet Ham Sliders...oh, YUM!

A great thing about reading blogs is learning new sources. Today I was visiting Noel's Apron Free Cooking blog. Her post about holiday appetizers appealed to me. Noel gives credit to Boar's Head for these sliders made with ham and apple butter.

Yes. That's right.

Apple butter!

I know, right? I was thinking the same thing..."now THAT looks interesting and is different from the usual mustard that goes on ham".

I cannot wait to try these...or even to just forego mustard the next time that I make ham sandwiches and get out the apple butter instead.

So...here it is. One idea sparks another. And all because of blogging.

Neat, huh?

Oh, and naturally I had to go to the Boar's Head website to find out more about them. This proved to be a good move as they have a wonderful recipe section. Check it out here.
