Are you a Farm Bureau member? You may have been asked that question recently as the Belmont County Farm Bureau membership campaign kicked off with its recent membership dinner which had over 175 people in attendance.
“Our goal each year is to grow our membership” said Mengon. “Everyone is invited to join – you don’t have to be a farmer. In fact many of our members are gardeners, animal lovers, work in the food industry or just enjoy eating.”
“We have a member benefit package with something for everyone” she said. Some of the benefits of a Farm Bureau membership include: Support of legislative efforts on important issues like energy, CAUV, water quality and more; a subscription to Our Ohio magazine offering consumer news, travel info, food tips and recipes. Savings are available on a Ford vehicle purchase, hotel stay, car rental, John Deere products, restaurants and much more. There is a mobile Farm Bureau app available to members only which gives members savings at many local and state businesses.
When you join Farm Bureau or renew a current membership by March 31, you have a chance to win a flat screen TV, a Yeti cooler, Stihl chainsaw, Heritage gift card or cash card.
Ohio Farm Bureau is a grassroots membership organization that works to support our state’s food and farm community.
