On Tuesday, June 19, Ashtabula County Farm Bureau, together with Bissell Maple Farm of Jefferson, Ohio, hosted their annual Ice Cream Social and the opportunity to meet and learn more about local candidates. Members and non-members alike listened as Tony Seegers, OFBF director of state policy, moderated the candidates forum. Attendees enjoyed a tour of Bissell Maple Farm’s facilities, where voters heard from those seeking various county and state offices, all while enjoying ice cream and other sweet treats.
Among the topics of discussion: CAUV, agriculture and education, increasing farm success, ag industry opportunities, tax incentives, and algal blooms.
Ashtabula County Farm Bureau thanks Bissell Maple Farm and all who participated in making the evening an enjoyable and educational event.
