BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – Agriculture is a vital industry in Wood County. Fields of corn, soybeans, and wheat are seen as we drive through the county or even in our own backyards, yet we know little of how the products are grown and what they are used for. Products found on the store shelves are made from local products from local farms.
Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., the Wood Soil and Water Conservation District is partnering with county organizations and businesses to host a Wood County AG-Venture Self-Driving Farm Tour. Local agriculture industry leaders are opening their homes and businesses throughout Wood County to highlight Ohio’s #1 Industry – agriculture.
Visit the stops through-out the day at your own pace to sit in farm equipment, pet farm animals, talk to farmers, and taste some farm food, and learn what agriculture is in Wood County.
