Are you a Farm Bureau member? You may have been asked that question recently as the Belmont, Guernsey, Monroe and Noble County Farm Bureau membership campaign kicked off with a membership dinner. The dinner was held Thursday, Jan. 31, at Mid-East Career Center in Senecaville. More than 185 people were in attendance to enjoy a delicious meal catered by Goodpaster Catering. Yvonne Lesicko, OFBF vice president of public policy, shared information with members concerning CAUV, water quality and rural broadband.
The goal each year is to grow active membership. Everyone is invited to join; you don’t have to be a farmer. Many Farm Bureau members are gardeners, animal lovers, work in the food industry, or just enjoy eating.
Some of the benefits of a Farm Bureau membership include: Support of legislative efforts on important issues like energy, CAUV, water quality and more; a subscription to Our Ohio magazine offering consumer news, travel info, food tips and recipes; savings on Ford vehicles, hotel stay, car rental, John Deere products, restaurants and much more. There is a mobile Farm Bureau app available to members only which gives members savings at many local and state businesses.
When you join Belmont, Guernsey, Monroe or Noble County Farm Bureau or renew a current membership by March 31, you have a chance to win a $500 cash card, $500 Cabin Getaway, $500 gun certificate, $200 J-Mo Meats Certificate, cooler, OSU tailgate set or an Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. No purchase necessary to enter or win. Only Ohio residents 18 years of age or older are eligible. Other eligibility rules apply. Entry details and a full set of rules are available by contacting the Farm Bureau office, 100 Colonel Drive, Barnesville, OH 43713.
