Those interested in becoming involved in the community and finding out why membership in Brown County’s Farm Bureau is meant for both farmers and nonfarmers should read the March/April issue of Our Ohio magazine.

The issue features Chris Rogers of Mount Orab and Heather Utter of Georgetown, both dedicated community members and local advocates for Farm Bureau. The article explains why Rogers volunteers his time as the Brown County Farm Bureau President to make an impact on the community’s needs. Rogers works with a volunteer county board to take input from residents and find ways to solve common problems of the community together, many times problems that go beyond farming. Utter, one of the organization directors for Ohio Farm Bureau supports volunteers in southern Ohio communities, including Brown County. She works to develop programs under the direction of the organization’s members and says those programs are a way to connect farmers and nonfarmers in the community.

An annual membership in Brown County is $60 and comes with a subscription to Our Ohio magazine. For the full article, visit http://ouroh.io/BrownOFB.
