The Farm Bureau board has recently evaluated the office structure and found that we are generally contacted by email or telephone and rarely receive visitors in the county office. Maintaining a local office to accommodate deliveries and storage is not cost-effective.

Continuing to look at ways to maximize our dollars and still provide great programming and service to our members, the county Farm Bureau board has approved a merger of four county Farm Bureaus to the office in New Philadelphia.

Starting on September 1st, the new office address will be: 

2146 East High Avenue, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

Phone number is 330.339.7211 or toll free, 888.265.2090 and the emails will remain [email protected] and [email protected] Office hours will be Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8am-4pm with plans to move to a four-day workweek.

Carol Hoffman with 30 years of excellent member service will be your office administrator until an additional staff person is hired. The office staff will continue to provide the excellent level of service you have grown to expect.

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

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.

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.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
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
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.
