Growing Our Generation: Entrepreneurs and Teach Ag

It’s September, and life is about to get crazy(ier) for our family!

Welcome to this edition of the Ohio Farm Bureau Young Ag Professionals Growing Our Generation eletter. We are your featured editors, Greg and Rose Hartschuh from Crawford County.

It always seems like we have plenty to do, but fall adds a new dynamic of events and activities to our lives. Greg works full-time on his family’s dairy farm, so for him, September means corn silage, fifth cutting hay, and preparing to harvest corn and soybeans. For Rose, September means a new sales year for our Syngenta seeds dealership, helping farmers make the best decisions for their cover crop needs, and gearing up for another season at our agritourism operation.

No matter what time of the year, one of our absolute highlights is spending time with our twin boys, Dwight and Jordan. As two-year-olds will often do, they bring an awesome level of fun and joy to our lives.

We love giving back to our community and contributing to causes we believe in. Greg is a volunteer fireman, and we both volunteer at our church and serve as 4-H advisers. Rose is on the county Farm Bureau board and Soil and Water Conservation District board. We enjoy participating in Young Ag Professionals events at the county and state level; we served on the Ohio Young Ag Professional Advisory Team several years ago. As young people, life may always seem “busy,” but serving others must be a priority. If we don’t get involved, who will?

This blog is part of the Hartschuh’s turn as featured editors of the Growing Our Generation eletter. Read their full eletter or browse the archive of past issues.
