About Us

The Farm Office is your farm's agricultural law and farm management resource center. 

Our team of experts represent OSU Extension programs in Agricultural & Resource Law, Dairy Production Economics, Farm Business Analysis and Benchmarking, Farm Risk Management, Ohio Ag Manager, Production Business Management and Tax.
We've collaborated to form the Farm Office, a one-stop shop for research and outreach on the legal and economic challenges of agricultural production.

The Farm Office team in 2018 (L-R):  David Marrison, Evin Bachelor (now with Wright & Moore Law), Dianne Shoemaker, Peggy Kirk Hall, Ben Brown and Barry Ward.

OSU's Agricultural & Resource Law Program, a member of the Farm Office Team, is a partner with the National Agricultural Law Center and supported by the USDA's National Agriculture Library.
