We are thrilled to introduce Haley Wilson as this month’s Feature Farmer! Haley is a current student at The Ohio State University and is majoring in agriscience education. She is also an FFA adviser and was an intern for the Ohio Farm Bureau State Fair Land and Living Exhibit. When she was on the student side of things in FFA at New Lexington High School, she raised sheep, goats and market rabbits along with growing peaches and pears.

What Haley loves most about being involved in agriculture is the chance at continuous learning! Because this is a multi-faceted industry, there’s always the opportunity to gain more knowledge, even about commodities that she may not know personally. She also appreciates the chance to facilitate experiences and events in which young people grow and learn thanks to her internship and future career.

Haley says what makes her different is her realization that she has a lot to learn but she so enjoys taking every opportunity to learn more about the industry by attending conferences and through her internship. She also gains knowledge by networking with the commodity groups within the state, such as Ohio Corn and Wheat and the Ohio Pork Council.

Being a Farm Bureau member has been beneficial to Haley through representation to legislators and it has been a great source of volunteer hours for students. She also really appreciates the discounts that are available for the membership which allow her to save money on hotels and even equipment for her land lab.

Thank you Haley for all you do in being a part of shaping the future of our agriculture community!

As a member of Farm Bureau, I am glad that this organization takes action when necessary to protect and advance agriculture.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
