Meet Montgomery County Farm Bureau Trustee Tom Hertlein

Tom has been a Farm Bureau member for nearly 40 years. The third generation farmer in Vandalia attended The Ohio State University and earned a degree in agriculture. He enjoys restoring old farm equipment and could make a living out of being a jokester. His Farm Bureau journey began because of his interest and love for agriculture. He decided to join Farm Bureau because he says that living rurally is a great way to be raised, and being involved with the organization enhances that community aspect of life. Tom’s favorite aspect of Farm Bureau is being the person that helps the lives of farmers. He enjoys being a part of the public policy, the laws, and regulations portions of the organization. Tom likes bringing the issues to action because these issues are faced by farmers just like him. Tom is and always has been keen on lending a helping hand, not only to other farmers, but to the entire 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.

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.
