Ohio's Got Your Back
We've Got Your Back
Agriculture is the number one industry in Ohio. We know our farmers give so much of themselves to keep the industry strong. We also know so many factors in farming are out of a farmer’s control, and that can be stressful. Wondering if the weather will cooperate, long hours working alone – it can all affect the well-being of the farm family. We want you to know, you’re not alone. We want you to know, there is help available. We want you to know, we’ve got your back.
