The Our Ohio Grow and Know series offers a number of tours, dining events, how-to seminars and learning activities focused on Ohio farms and food.
Grow and Know events vary across the state, but all provide opportunities for the community to engage in conversations about food and agriculture.
Guests can experience the sights, tastes and sounds of Ohio agriculture as the events are held on local orchards, barns, pastures, wineries and more. As a Farm Bureau member benefit, many of the events are free or offered at reduced rates to members.
Check out the list of upcoming events below or view the complete event details on the calendar of events at the bottom of the page. If there’s not an event scheduled near you, consider inviting friends or family members to join you in attending a Grow and Know event while exploring an area of the state you’ve never visited.
We hope you’ll join us at a Grow and Know event soon.
