Monroe County Farm Bureau recently held its annual membership kickoff. Senior Organization Director Betsy Anderson gave volunteers numerous reasons why landowners, gardeners, hunters, outdoorsmen and many others should join Farm Bureau.
Recent legislative efforts were highlighted, as well as Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) savings experienced by many in the county.
Currently there are over 530 members in Monroe County Farm Bureau and the membership continues to grow. For more information on Farm Bureau or to join, contact the office at 740-425-3681.
Anderson said, “There is room for everyone in Farm Bureau, from those that grow our food to those that consume the great products produced.”
Monroe County Farm Bureau is a grassroots membership organization that works to support our county’s food and farm community. Monroe County Farm Bureau members have a forum to discuss current issues impacting agriculture, food production and the community. There are opportunities throughout the year to meet with public officials to implement these ideas, and the Farm Bureau staff advocates on members’ behalf at the local, state and national levels.
