The Van Wert County Farm Bureau wants to encourage members to get familiar with their board and members, so we are going to kick off some blogs by introducing our board president. The Van Wert County board president is Craig Pohlman and we asked him a few questions about agriculture and Farm Bureau to help our members get to know him a little better.
Q. What does agriculture mean to you?
A. It is a passion as much as a job. Helping to be a steward of resources God has provided to grow food is very rewarding.
Q. What influenced your career in agriculture?
A. Mostly my dad and growing up on our farm.
Q. What is your favorite part about being involved in the Farm Bureau?
A. Getting to see how important agriculture is to our state and country.
Q. What is your fondest memory from the Farm Bureau?
A. My first president’s trip to Washington, D.C. with Ohio Farm Bureau.
Q. What advice would you give to the next generation of agriculturalists?
A. Don’t be afraid to step up, say yes, and get involved. We are a minority and need all of the voices involved we can get.
Thank you for all your hard work for Farm Bureau, Craig!
