Greene County Farm Bureau has decided to sponsor eight members this year to attend the YAP conference Jan. 29 and 30, 2021 – virtual. If you are interested, please call the Greene County Office at 937-382-4407. Hurry — these spaces won’t last long!

Attendance at the Young Ag Professionals Leadership Experience is just one benefit of being an Ohio Farm Bureau member.

The theme of the conference this is  “Cultivating progress in times of change” and to help deliver that theme are keynote speakers Rob Sharkey, host of the Shark Farmer Podcast, and inspirational speaker, Matt Rush. We look forward to seeing you online in January. Visit the event website for agenda, speaker and registration information.

You also will have the opportunity to network with conference supporters and Young Ag Professionals. You will not want to miss this event. Join fellow Young Ag Professionals from the comfort of your home! Early-bird registration ends Dec. 20.

Agriculture has many faces, just like young ag professionals. We are young adults, single and married, who share a passion for farming, rural living, and/or local foods. We’re full and part-time farmers, Extension agents, teachers, consumer educators, media reporters, livestock and equine enthusiasts, beekeepers, green industry employees, gardeners, foodies and more! We invite you to join us for leadership experience, building personal and professional skills, networking with agricultural leaders, and making a difference in our communities, Farm Bureau and agriculture. Join us for a time of personal and professional development, meeting other young professionals from around Ohio, fun, food and fellowship!


Farm Bureau is an incredible organization that has given me countless professional development opportunities in addition to advocating for all sizes and types of farmers.

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, D.C.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
