Holmes County Farm Bureau is preparing to kick off its annual campaign to spread awareness and gain new members. Over the next few months, members of the agricultural community are encouraged to engage with Farm Bureau members and the board of trustees to learn more about the organization and its impact at the local, state and national level.
Holmes County businesses interested in partnering with Farm Bureau can invest in a group membership. For $360, a business can take advantage of five individual memberships for employees, two complimentary tickets to the Young Ag Professionals Winter Leadership Event, advertising on social media, and the full array of Farm Bureau benefits and resources. Additional memberships are available at $72 each. Local businesses already taking advantage of this opportunity include Ag-Pro, Farm Credit Mid-America, Heritage Cooperative, Hi-Hills Farm and the Fitzpatrick Family.
Anyone interested in joining or renewing their membership are encouraged to visit with board members and volunteers at the annual conference of the Ohio Forum for Companion Animals, formerly known as the Ohio Professional Dog Breeders Association. This conference will be held Feb. 27, 2021 at the Mount Hope Event Center. Anyone who joins or renews their membership will receive a small gift and will also be entered to win a Henry Golden Boy H004 .22 rifle. Complete rules can be found here.
Member appreciation events will also be held March 10 at Loudonville Farmers Equity and March 17 at Mt. Hope Ag Center. On March 10, stop in at Loudonville Farmers Equity between 8 am and 5 pm to join or renew your membership and get a $10 gift card to spend at the Equity! On March 17 from 8 am to 5 pm, stop in to Mount Hope Ag Center to join or renew your membership for a $10 gift card to their business.
Anyone interested in learning more about Holmes County Farm Bureau is encouraged to reach out to a current board member or call the office at 330-263-7456.
