Growing Our Generation: Farmer and Graduate Student

Happy New Year! I hope this edition of Growing Our Generation finds you in the midst of jovial holiday gatherings and new year celebrations.

I’m Hannah Scott from Brown County. My family and I raise row crops, forages, burley tobacco, hops and beef cattle. We raise the cattle from calving to finish, marketing them through our local cooperative and selling beef directly to consumers. I love the challenges and rewards of farming with my mom, dad and brother and look forward to working with my brother into our farm’s next generation.

I also work as a program manager for Ohio State University where I help develop new and emerging cooperative businesses across rural Ohio and West Virginia. This position is a great fit for my academic training in rural sociology. As a graduate student at Ohio State, my studies and research focused on agricultural policy making, rural issues and the sociology of agriculture.

I would be remiss if I didn’t also share that I am a graduate of Ohio Farm Bureau’s AgriPOWER Institute and that it was a wonderful experience. If you’re interested in broadening your knowledge of agriculture, networking with some great ag leaders and learning to be an effective agvocate, definitely check out the program!
