While 2020 has certainly been less than normal, Licking County Farm Bureau remained hard at work. Now that 2020 is coming to an end, we are looking forward to the excitement of 2021 and bringing back some of the programs we were forced to cancel in 2020.
We were honored to be a part of a 15,000 pound donation of ground pork in partnership with the Englefield Family, Heartland Bank and the Ohio Association of Foodbanks along with the Hartford Senior Fair Board. This ground pork was donated to Mid-Ohio Foodbank, The Food Pantry Network of Licking County, Ronald McDonald House and Recreation Unlimited. THANK YOU to our partners, and to the Hartford Fair exhibitors for completing their market hog projects in a difficult year which ultimately made this possible.
Wine Craze Corn Maze
Back by popular demand, this year’s event raised money for the Licking County Farm Bureau Scholarship Fund. With over 300 participants at this fully outdoor event, wine was offered from Buckeye Winery and a light dinner was served from Heritage Catering. Save the date; this event will be back Sept. 9, 2021 at Van Buren Acres!
Congratulations to our four scholarship winners: Cora Dorman, Keri Felumlee, Chelsea Graham and Shaeley Warner. Farm Bureau is honored to be a small part of their continued education.
Coming back in 2021
We are looking forward to bringing back the Farmer’s Share Breakfast and the Farm Tour. Check back for more information!
