We'd like to hear from farmers! If you're a farmer, please consider completing our "Farm Legal Needs Survey."
What do we want to know? Our survey asks you to tell us a little bit about your farming operation and:
- What legal issues you've encountered in your operation
- Your most challenging legal issues
- Farm management information needs
- How and where you prefer to receive legal and farm management information
Why are we asking these questions? While the Farm Office team is engaged in farm management and agricultural law everyday, we want to make sure we're not missing anything! Hearing from farmers across Ohio will help us identify emerging issues, additional resources needed, and how to ensure our information is getting out to the farm community.
How long will it take? Only 5 or 10 minutes.
Is participation anonymous? Yes. We don't ask you to identify yourself or your operation.
Where is the survey? Access the survey through this link or the QR code below.
Questions? Please contact Peggy Hall at email@example.com with any questions about the survey.
Thank you for helping us help you with your legal and farm management needs!

As you may know, Ohio State's campuses and offices are closed. But we are all working away at home, and our virtual offices are still open for business. Starting today, April 6th, the OSU Extension Farm Office Team will open our offices online and offer weekly live office hours from 8:00-9:30 pm EST. We'll provide you with short updates on emerging topics and help answer your questions about the farm economy. Each evening will start off with a quick 10-15-minute summary of select farm management topics from our experts and then we'll open it up for questions and answers from attendees on other topics of interest. For tonight's office hours, we'll focus on the newly enacted CARES Act and how it affects agriculture.
Who's on the Farm Office Team? Our team features OSU experts ready to help you run your farm office:
- Peggy Kirk Hall -- agricultural law
- Dianne Shoemaker -- farm business analysis and dairy production
- Ben Brown -- agricultural economics
- David Marrison -- farm management
- Barry Ward -- agricultural economics and tax
Each office session is limited to 500 people and if you miss our office hours, we'll post recordings on farmoffice.osu.edu the following day. Register at https://go.osu.edu/farmofficelive. We look forward to seeing you there!
