In cooperation with WLRY 88.9 FM and local sponsors that include Ruff Seed Farms, Fairfield Federal, Bay Food Market, the Fairfield County Cattlemen Association, Hugus Fruit Farm and Rise Land Company, local youth are interviewed throughout the year highlighting their project work and youth development activities. Each week these interviews become a special feature of the 88.9 FM WLRY The Farm Page that airs on Saturday mornings beginning at 7 am. Many of these interviews are archived below for your enjoyment.
In addition, each Friday, WLRY 88.9 FM radio host Mike O'Riley visits with your local OSU Extension staff about what's going on locally in the garden, on the farm, in the kitchen and around the County. Tune in at 8:05 a.m. and get timely tips directly from Ohio State University Extension experts about the farm, garden or other ag and horticulture related happenings impacting our daily lives.
You can catch a replay of those conversations along with the youth and other local interviews when you tune into The Farm Page, Saturday mornings from 6 a.m. until 8 a.m. at 88.9 FM or catch them streaming at WLRY.org.
