Food Production


Ohio State University Extension faculty and staff offer many educational programs for individuals, families, businesses, and communities on topics related to some aspect of food production.  Some common programs across the state include agriculture, GAP (Good Agricultural Practices), community gardening, Master Gardener Volunteers and 4-H projects.   In addition to workshops, demonstrations, and field days, OSU Extension provides educational materials on different food production topics, in both print and digital formats.  These materials range from single-topic fact sheets on topics such as pruning apple trees, to more comprehensive bulletins on how to grow fruit crops in Ohio.  Most of these educational materials are available free or for a small fee at the OSU Extension website at
