Growing Our Generation: A life of abundance

As I thought about what I wanted to share with everyone, I was inundated with ideas. There are so many things going on in today’s world, especially in agriculture, that we have to think about and address. From using social media to GMOs to understanding global politics, my mind was swarming with ideas. But it finally dawned on me how lucky we are to have these issues and the chance to discuss them, and in the same hand it is our challenge to address them for our future.

Hi! I am Emily Buck, from Marion County. I am a mother, farmer, and college professor. My husband John and I, along with our 3-year-old daughter Harlie, farm row crops and raise sheep on the farm that has been in his family for three generations. When we are not hosting educational events on the farm, working lambs at the fair, or out in the fields, I am in Columbus at Ohio State University where I am an associate professor of agricultural communication. I am so blessed in that I get to teach future agriculturalists daily on how to use the media to talk about the thing they love and are passionate about. Outside of teaching students about social media, website development, writing and photography, I also do research on how social media is best used to communicate to consumers about science issues.
