Henry County Farm Bureau

The Henry County Agriculture Society and Henry County Farm Bureau are seeking applications for the Agriculture Hall of Fame. Those selected will be recognized during the Henry County Fair Aug. 12-19.

Applicants who are or who have been active in Henry County agriculture for more than 25 years and are/were leaders in the agriculture community are encouraged to apply. Guidelines are part of the application.

Applications are available from the Henry County Fair website, henrycountyfair.org, or from the fair office. Call 419-592-9096; the Farm Bureau office, call 419-445-0723; or by email at [email protected].

The application deadline is July 1, but if you are working on an application please let John Poulson know so he has the application before the meeting later in July.

A listing of members of the Hall of Fame is available on the website.

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

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
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.

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.

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.
