Lake County Farm Bureau board member Anne Poorman resides in Madison, Ohio. She earned her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Notre Dame as well as a master’s degree from Case Western Reserve University. Her family includes her husband Eric Cotton, and their cat Gertrude. Anne is a project manager at Rockwell Automotive. She grew up helping on her family’s farm in Fremont, Ohio where they raised row crops, vegetables and had orchards. She and her husband now raise grapes and have a vineyard in Madison. She has been a Farm Bureau member for 12 years and serves on the Lake County board as the secretary.
When we asked Anne why she was a Farm Bureau Member she replied, “ To support our business, and to educate people about farming. Plus… I was drafted by my husband.” Some interesting facts about Anne is that she and her husband recently opened up a winery called Silver Crest Cellars. She also has been working on her parents and uncle’s farm since childhood.
Thank you Anne for your dedication to Lake County Farm Bureau. We appreciate what you do.
