Attention farm or business owners: Gallia County Farm Bureau is seeking participants for its Buying Local Directory.

The Buying Local Directory will be distributed to 600 Farm Bureau members and will serve as a direct connection between local businesses and the community. It will also be available at local events and sent to new members as they join Farm Bureau throughout the year. 

Active members can be listed in the directory for free. Group members can also display a free half page ad (no larger than 5″x7″). These ad spaces offer a direct connection to the 600 Gallia County Farm Bureau members as well as other Gallia County residents who pick up the directory at Farm Bureau events.

If businesses choose to offer a local member benefit as well, those will be included in the Buying Local Directory. The way you participate and the member benefit you choose to offer is entirely up to you. Please specify if your member benefit needs to have a specific time frame.

In addition to these benefits, Farm Bureau will happily promote your business on Facebook (Athens-Meigs, Gallia, Lawrence County Farm Bureaus) including your local member benefit, if offered.

Use this Buying Local Form to sign up for the Buying Local Directory.  Please contact the county office at 740-201-2739 or email [email protected] with any questions. Return this form for your free ad by Feb. 26, 2021. 

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.

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
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.
