Meet new Montgomery County Farm Bureau Trustee Chad Gilbert
Chad is a proud Farm Bureau member. He is serving his first-ever term on the board. He decided to join Farm Bureau to be surrounded by like-minded people with the same interests and for staying informed of local issues. Chad also wanted to join because he has never truly been active, but now is his chance. Chad said he lives for the social aspect of Farm Bureau. He likes to know how people in the community are doing and more about their farms and families. In addition, Chad has been married for 18 years to his wife, Lucy, and they have two sons.
Chad works for his parents doing many different tasks, such as operating the grain elevator, selling chemical fertilizer, and transporting products. Chad is also a farmer. After earning a degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University, he decided to go back to the family farm because of his love for farming.
