While 2020 has certainly been less than normal, the Coshocton County Farm Bureau remained hard at work. Now that 2020 is coming to an end, Farm Bureau is looking forward to the excitement of 2021 and bringing back some of the programs we were forced to cancel in 2020. Here is a recap of 2020:
Breakfast on the Farm
The first event of 2020 was the annual Breakfast on the Farm, held at Lapp Farms. This event serves multiple purposes as we partner with Jeff Drennen Ford and Fill-A-Ford with donations for New Life Ministries, serve breakfast through the air with Chris Cakes and present the annual worker’s compensation safety program for our members enrolled in that program. If you haven’t been to this event yet, mark your calendars for March 6, 2021 and plan to join us!
We were so excited to bring a new event this year- the ATV Tour! We had over 50 ATV and UTVs travel among Endsley Farm, Fender’s Fish Hatchery, Daugherty’s Dairy and Coshocton Hops to learn more about local agriculture. Following the tours, a catered dinner was served by Schumaker Farms. We can’t wait to bring you this year’s tour. Stay tuned for more information and be ready to tackle a different part of the county! A special thank you to the Coshocton County Sheriff for allowing an officer to block traffic while we crossed state routes and high traffic intersections.
Congratulations to our five scholarship winners! Farm Bureau is honored to support the higher education of Hayden Shook, Kristina Scheurman, Hayden McCoy, Logan Smith and Elizabeth Porteus
Young Agricultural Professionals
We are still looking to grow our Young Ag Professionals group in Coshocton County. We meet annually at the Wooly Pig Farm Brewery for pizza and drinks in the spring. Young Ag Professionals are 18-35 years old, single or married, and interested in agriculture. If you have ideas of programs you would like to see the YAP group accomplish, let us know!
Coming back in 2021
We are looking forward to bringing back Dinner on the Farm, 4th Grade Ag Day and Little Farmer Zone. Check back for more information!
