March 17, 2007
#3: Farmer-Nonfarmer Relationships Matter:Visiting with a farmer associated with increased support & reduced concerns(63% of Ohioans report having no conversations with farm household members)
#4: Building Bridges to Nonfarmers—Participation in Farm & Rural “Recreation” Strongly Associated with Knowledge & Attitudes:Must be prepared for the consequence, though
Local only—strong interest in supporting farmers & Ohio farming
Local (& organic)—Health, environment, broader spectrum of food & farming attributes

Local—growing social distance from farming
Dual—will younger be interested in cooking with whole foods?
