We would like to take the time on Tuesdays to introduce you to our county board trustees! While they are busy with their jobs and families, they still manage to find time to do great work for Farm Bureau and we appreciate all that they continue to do for the county Farm Bureau. We value these members and their many hours contributed to making Farm Bureau great.
This week we would like to introduce you to Brandi Montgomery.

I grew up just outside of Eaton, Ohio in Preble County.

I have been a Farm Bureau member for eight years.

I grew up showing livestock and being actively involved in 4-H and FFA. I earned my bachelor’s degree at Wilmington College where I studied agriculture with a concentration in agronomy
What is your current job title?
I manage Weade Law Office in Washington Court House and help on the family farm on evenings and weekends! My biggest role on the farm these days is being a farm wife and momma! At the law office we serve many farmers in our rural community and I stay busy on the farm feeding the guys and raising our babes to know and love agriculture just as we do.

I have been very involved with Farm Bureau! I have served locally as a trustee on the Fayette County Board.

I have also served at the state level on the Policy Development Committee and a two-year term on the State Young Ag Professionals Committee where my husband, Wes, and I served as chaircouple.
What is one interesting fact about yourself?
One interesting fact about me is that I love design and decor! We are in the never ending process of remodeling an old farm house on one of the farms and I really enjoy bringing a vision to life. Most of my visions are still a work in process, but before too long our little boys’ big boy room will be complete with a Farm Boy Country Chic look! I can’t wait to see it all come together.
