For episode 7 of The Outstanding Ohioians show, I had the privilege of interviewing Gene Logsdon, the well-known "Contrary Farmer". Gene has authored 30 books, written for many farming journals, and his popular blog "The Contrary Farmer".
During the interview that will stir your soul, Mr. Logsdon will reminisce about growing up and returning to Upper Sandusky, being raised in a charming rural lifestyle, giving the Seminary a try, becoming a writer, raising a family, and recently fighting a battle with cancer that made him look at life through a different lens.
Mr. Logsdon is best recognized through his writing as an advocate for garden and small-scale farming, along with sharing pieces of farming history. His writing is often the result from his own small farming operations or talking to others.
I really enjoyed my conversation prior to the interview, and I trust you will enjoy listening to the podcast. Here is how you can learn more about Mr. Logsdon:

In this episode, listeners will listen how Tom and Bev Theobald transformed their family farm into a very successful agri-tourism enterprise. Agri-tourism is a movement based on getting customers to visit the farm for a variety of activities. This book is an excellent resource to learn about agri-tourism.
Tom and Bev were very generous in sharing the successes and learning opportunities from unsuccessful ventures. They walked through each development phase from ideation to infrastructure to execution, and then evaluation. They shared their philosophies of listening to customers, offering a quality product, working as a family, and giving back generously to the community.

I was inspired by listening to the Theobald’s story and admire how they have created an incredible family business. I believe you will feel the same way. Thank you for listening.
