Farm Bureau is organized on three levels – local, state and national.
The county (local) is the very heart and strength of the organization. It’s here the members work together as volunteers in an effort to improve their profession. Seeking solutions to problems which affect their social and economic well being is the reason they join this general farm organization. The policy Farm Bureau operates by is developed at the county level by farmer members who are concerned and interested in their organization. Farm Bureau’s strength comes directly from participation by members. The more members that get actively involved, the stronger your organization becomes.
The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation (OFBF) exists to provide both technical resources and personnel to support county Farm Bureau volunteers in meeting their goals.
The American Farm Bureau Federation has a similar role, working at the national level.
Ohio Farm Bureau’s Vision is to forge a partnership between farmers and consumers that meets consumer needs and ensures agricultural prosperity in a global marketplace. For more information, please visit ofbf.org.
