Ohio Agriculture Week

Calendar topics: Career Holidays (Recognition Holidays)
Spread over 14 million acres, Ohio’s more than 75,000 farms range from small hobby farms to large, family-run operations. All of them are equally important to the Buckeye State’s massive food and agriculture industry – the largest industry in the state – which contributes $105 billion annually to Ohio’s economy. Ohio’s farms are diverse in more than just size. Poultry, soybeans, corn, pork, dairy and sheep top the state’s commodity list in terms of production value, but you’ll also find blueberries, strawberries, sweet corn, honeybees, chestnuts, sunflowers and more. In fact, the state’s farmers grow and raise more than 200 products, which explains why Ohio is a leader in more than 35 product sectors. These farms differ in growing methods as well, from organic to conventional. In 2011, Ohio was home to 505 certified organic farms, a number that continues to grow with the rise in popularity of organics.
The second full week of March is designated as "Ohio Agriculture Week" in order to increase public recognition of the vitally important role that agriculture plays both in this state and across the nation. (ORC: 5.2266 Ohio agriculture week. Added by 129th General AssemblyFile No.4, HB 89, §1, eff. 6/10/2011.)
“Food and agriculture is Ohio’s number one industry and is the basis for virtually everything in our lives. It meets our basic needs, it provides a market for food processing and manufacturing industries, it supports local industries and businesses,” said Daniels (Ohio. March 15, 2016 – Ohio Department of Agriculture Director David T. Daniels).
