There is a new President in town. The Pike County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees was handed over from former President Christopher Brust, to newly elected President Robin Williams. Robin and her husband Tim own and operate William’s Farm, a cow calf operation with approximately 250 acres in Pike County with an additional 300 acres of leased ground. Robin and Tim have two children and seven grandchildren, who they love spending time with.
“I manage a small herd of Quarter and Paint Horses. I teach riding lessons, equine safety, and I enjoy showing and trail riding with my family and friends, as well as giving Ag Education tours on the farm. “When asked ‘What is something unique about your farm?’ Robin said, “Our farm is known as the place everyone feels at home and has become a gathering place for family, friends, and visitors as we have a wide variety of farm animals and activities. I am often bringing a new addition home to add to my variety of farm animals!”
In addition to her busy farm life, Robin works at the City of Waverly’s Mayor’s Office serving as the Zoning Administrator, Community Development Director, as well as the FEMA Flood Plain Manager. In addition Robin is the coordinator of the Waverly Planning Commission.
“I serve on the Ohio Public Works Commission District 15 Integrating and Executive Committee,” she said. Robin is also very active in the community. She currently serves on the Family and Children First Council.
She has always been very involved with the Farm Bureau for many years. She has served as Communication Action Team Leader, Vice President, Secretary, and as a Delegate to the state annual meeting. Robin also works in conjunction with the Ohio Farm Bureau to serve on the Equine Advisory Board. Robin has served for over 10 years on the committee for the Pike County Farm Bureau Agriculture Awareness Day field trip for Pike County Schools 3rd graders.
“I love being involved in our local youth groups, Farm Bureau, 4-H and Equine,” Robin said. When asked what is interesting about Pike County, Robin said, “We have those beautiful rolling hills of southern Ohio to enjoy and the farm ground is beautiful. From my front porch I have taken some of the most beautiful sunset pictures you will ever see.
“The small town I work in is often referred to as ‘Mayberry’ and we have beautiful lakes and state and federal forests to enjoy.”
When asked what is something that you believe in,Robin said, “God, family, country and the American Dream… I believe you have to work to achieve your goals.”
Something not related to Farm Bureau, Robin said her favorite food is “My mommas fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, hot rolls, sweet tea with lemon, and coconut pie and you are set!”
