Logan County awards first grant from Agriculture Impact Fund

Logan County Farm Bureau is excited to announce the awarding of one of two grants from its newly formed Logan County Agriculture Impact Fund to Indian Lake/Ohio Hi-Point FFA program.

The Logan County Agriculture Impact Fund was created from the proceeds from last April’s Logan County Ag Impact Fund Reverse Raffle organized by the county Farm Bureau, and the county is proud to be able to award over $17,000 in grants this first year. The grants are designed to support and improve the agricultural footprint for youth, agriculture organizations, and schools to develop/improve programming about agriculture, improve infrastructure for agriculture education or promote agriculture in our community.

Indian Lake/Ohio Hi-Point FFA program received a $7,350 Ag Impact Grant for the construction of a 24-by-26-foot animal project building. The building, called a chick-inn hutch, will be constructed on the school’s campus and will be stocked with equipment for feeding and maintaining animal projects that the chapter’s students will be raising. The building will serve as a home for the FFA students’ projects and allow those who do not live on a farm to participate in raising animals. Construction will begin this coming spring.

Thank you to the community for supporting the raffle which made it all possible! The second Logan County Agriculture Impact Fund Reverse Raffle coming up April 13, 2019. For more information or to buy a ticket, please call the county office at 877-775-7642 or email [email protected].
