The mission of the Ohio Department of Agriculture is to provide regulatory protection to producers, agribusinesses, and the consuming public; to promote Ohio agricultural products in domestic and international markets; and to educate citizens of Ohio about our agricultural industry.
In addition to its regulatory function, the department also preserves the industry through preservation programs and promotional activities. Over the past five years, more than 20,000 acres of land have been preserved through three farmland preservation programs administered by the department. The agency’s promotional activity helps build marketing opportunities at home and abroad for Ohio farmers, food processors, and other agricultural product manufacturers.
