The Agriculture and Natural Resource Educators in the counties of Fayette, Greene, Highland, Clinton, Clermont, Brown, Pike and Ross counties are working to collect a list of local producers to share with consumers through a variety of networks about locally grown or produced food sources. Obviously with the recent chain of events for our county, state, and country several questions have come up concerning the availability of local food sources, when the grocery stores are unable to maintain stock. Greene County has several local producers that offer locally grown/produced products, but consumers are not always aware of the details to purchase these local products. We have developed a simple survey that growers/producers in the area can complete about what products they have, when their products are available, payment options (WIC, SNAP, credit/debit card,PayPal), location(s), etc.
The survey can be accessed online at go.osu.edu/LocalFoodsProducersSurvey. Once in the survey the information is self-explanatory and easy to navigate through the process. It should only take five minutes or less to complete. The overall list will be able to be added to at any time, but we are encouraging producers/growers to sign-up as soon as possible.
