Experience

Please describe your past and/or present farming experience:

My family and my parents farm currently together as a partnership. With dad and mom retiring sooner than later My wife and I are seeking opportunities to grow our family farm. We hope to build a business and farm not only for ourselves but to build a business our children would desire to participate in. I refuse to believe that Ohio agriculture in Central Ohio and elsewhere frankly has to be developed and sold off. I still believe that if people are will to have conversations and discuss their real goals can not be realized. We came into this world with nothing and we leave it with nothing, however we believe you can leave something behind that can be enjoyed for generations with hardwork and dedication to a lifestyle few truly understand. Thank you for your consideration. Ryan Rhoades Rhoades Farm
