Wednesday I attended the Ohio State Fair. Had a great time by the way, but what stood out most is Ohio's vibrant and proud agricultural tradition.
Ohio is home to such giant urban centers as Columbus (where I am currently vacationing), Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dayton, Akron, and Toledo. However, agriculture remains a vital economic driver in the Buckeye State.
The landscape is flat. Rivers flow. Rail runs through the state and The Ohio State University has a highly-demanded agricultural program.
I am amazed to see such rural pride, scenery, and economic impact of farming and agriculture that is here in Ohio.
