Drive Through Breakfast with Santa

Roughly 400 attended a modified, drive-thru Breakfast on the Farm event, hosted by the Jackson-Vinton County Farm Bureau at the Jackson County Fairgrounds Dec. 13.

The county Farm Bureau and FFA students from Oak Hill and Jackson high schools, along with many local businesses, provided a pancake and sausage breakfast to-go to all kids who came that morning.

Mrs. Claus assisted with food disbursement, and after picking up breakfast, children and their parents drove through the fairgrounds to see Santa and give him their letters. There also was a green screen that allowed children to get photos with Santa from the safety of their vehicles but with a festive background. Children also got to see longhorn cattle, alpacas, miniature donkeys and pigs, goats and more as they passed by.

United Dairy Producers provided free bottles of milk for the kids, and the breakfasts were donated by local restaurants providing food items and monetary donations. American Dairy Association Mideast and dairy farmers from West Virginia and Ohio donated all the items for a gift bag also given to children who attended the free community event.

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

Available scholarships
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.

Strong communities
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
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.
