As you know, I am a proud Ohioan. Buckeye born and raised; I have spent all but 6 years of my life in this fine state. Ohio is truly the heart of it all- from beautiful scenery, to awesome sports teams to strong agricultural roots. And you can also add fantastic corporations to the list too! When you start looking at labels and business address, you find that many companies are based right here in the heartland of Ohio.
So I thought it would be fun to host a Buckeye Based Businesses Giveaway. All of the companies participating are own and operated right here in Ohio. So whether it’s one of your faves, or news to you- check out all the great items you could win!
Family owned and operated, Redex Industries, has manufactured Udderly Smooth® products for over 30 years. Manufactured in Salem, Ohio, UdderlySmooth was originally invented for use on dairy cows and is now used for dry and chapped skin. I cannot say enough about this aweome company and their, moo-velous product! 😉 I keep the Foot Cream on my bed side table and use it almost every night!

Where I’m From
Where I’m From was started by longtime friends Andrew VanderLind and Ryan Napier. These native Ohioans are graduates of Ohio University and share a deep sense of pride and affection for the state they call home. Where I’m From provides a fashionable way for people to show their allegiance while wearing exceptionally comfortable clothing. I am IN LOVE with my new Where I’m From Sweatshirt. Super cozy and unique- it was perfect for cheering on the Bucks during their Michigan Victory this year.

Piada Italian Street Food is an authentic fast-casual Italian eatery based in Columbus, Ohio (with restaurants in Ohio and Indiana). In 2013, Piada was named one of Nation’s Restaurant News’ five “Hot Concepts” as well as one of Nation’s Restaurant News’ top 50 breakout brands. And I know why; it’s absolutely delicious! Piada serves made to order Piadas (an Italian thin crust dough, baked on a stone grill, then hand rolled with fresh authentic ingredients), Pasta Bowls and Chopped Salads. And don’t forget those Pepperoni sticks dipped in parm sauce! Yum- I’m craving one right now!

Hirzel Canning Company, the producers of the Dei Fratelli brand, is a fourth generation family-owned business. Based out of Toledo, Ohio, all of the tomato growers that provide raw product for Dei Fratelli products are located within 20 miles of their processing facilities. The growers’ close proximity to processing plants ensures that the raw product is of the highest quality when it arrives at the manufacturing plants. I come from a farming heritage so I love how Dei Fratelli is supporting local farmers this way. Not to mention it makes for a superior product!
