“If you eat, you’re involved in agriculture.”
On Tuesday, July 24th, Ohio First Lady Karen W. Kasich and Ohio Agriculture Director David T. Daniels recognized Women in Ohio Agriculture at the Governor's Residence in Bexley, Ohio.
“These Ohio women have had an incredible impact on our state’s largest industry,” said Mrs. Kasich, who announced the creation of the award during last year’s Ohio State Fair. “It is an honor to recognize them today for their strength, leadership, and outstanding contributions.”
Among the nominees was our very own Kathy Rhoads from Rhoads Farm. Rhoads Farm has been a fixture in the central Ohio community since 1958, and Kathy is a true agricultural advocate. Read more about Kathy and Rhoads Farm in the Spring 2011 issue of Edible Columbus.
To Kathy and all the women in agriculture, congratulations and THANK YOU!'
