Open/Close

Have you ever thought about starting an agricultural business and selling your products, or taking your homestead to the next level?

The Athens OEFFA Chapter is presenting, "The Beginning Agricultural Entrepreneur," round table series at Rural Action during the month of January. Over four evening local agricultural entrepreneurs will present a short overview of their agricultural operation, providing key facets that were needed to get their business operating, along with some lessons learned along the way. We'll then open up a round table discussion for participants to ask questions of the presenters.

Join us on January 25, 2018 to hear from Bob O'Neil & Christine Hughes of Village Bakery & Cafe in Athens. Learn about using food from local producers in food service and retails enterprises.

Presenter – Jim Bidigare, Vice Chair of the Licking County Land Trust

A quote from a previous land trust speaker sums up the mission of the Licking County Land Trust – "One of the concepts that we want to emphasize is that we have to look at the soil and land as more than just space to build on." During this meeting, Jim Bidigare will provide information about long-term conservation protection for land, the importance of protecting our land and the processes that landowners can take to protect their land from becoming space to build on.
