Meet the ‘Early Risers’ in Holmes County

Holmes County’s “Early Risers” Farm Bureau Council has been meeting monthly for over 55 years to discuss vital agricultural issues.

“We truly understand the value of Ohio’s No. 1 industry, agriculture, through education and leadership. We value the continuing support of the Ohio Farm Bureau. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life in rural Ohio,” Lucille Hastings commented. Lucille was recognized in 2017 as the County Farm Bureau Member of Distinction. We appreciate everything Lucille and the entire “Early Risers” Community Council does to promote and support Holmes County Farm Bureau.
