Farmers Crossing Vendors

Farm Bureau members Lisa Row-Taylor of Bloomfield Meadows in Centerburg and Christy Hulse of Buckeye Country Creamery in Ashland were winners of the Farm Bureau vendor space giveaway at Farmers Crossing, a new Farm Bureau-sponsored area which was part of the Mid-America Restaurant Expo presented by the Ohio Restaurant Association in January. The Farmers Crossing area was dedicated to local farmers and highlighted the farm-to-table concept.

More on this year’s event can be found on a recent Town Hall Ohio podcast.

“We were pleasantly surprised after we left the show with a large stack of business cards from all different businesses that could help us grow — distributors, restaurants interested in buying our products, business that sell equipment we use, etc.  We are always thankful for all Ohio Farm Bureau does for our small business on legislation. Today, we are thankful for thinking outside the box and connecting our farm products to more consumers!” — Christy Hulse

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

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.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
