Essentials in Farm Transition Planning

Aug. 19 ~ 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

If you were unable to farm, for any reason, what would happen to your operation? Does everyone in your farm family agree about how to proceed? Don’t let your worries keep you from making the decisions and having the necessary conversations to ensure your goals for the farm are achieved.
This short session is developed for farm families ready to build a seamless transition for the operation to the next generation.

Join Ohio Farm Bureau, Nationwide and Wright and Moore Law for a live,
interactive townhall and get the answers to your questions about transitioning
your operation to the next generation.

Essentials in Retirement Planning

Aug. 28 ~ 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

Retirement for farmers is different. And each farmer has a different situation.

  • Do you have kids that want the farm?
  • Do you or your spouse have an off farm job with a 401k or pension?
  • Do you want to stay active on the farm or move to Florida?
  • Should you invest cash in retirement or buy more land and equipment?
  • When do I start planning? And when is it too late?
  • Is selling my farm the best retirement strategy?
  • Will land renting be enough to cover my expenses in retirement?

Join Ohio Farm Bureau and Nationwide Financial for a live, interactive townhall
and get the answers to your questions about retirement.

Essentials in Financial Risk Management

Developed for beginning, new, or evolving operations, this short session can
help point you in the right direction. Join Ohio Farm Bureau, Farm Credit Mid America and Nationwide for a live, interactive townhall and get the answers to your questions about financial risk.

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

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Leadership development
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.

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.

Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

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.
