Brittany Brewer is the summer intern for the Champaign, Clark, Darke, and Miami County Farm Bureaus. Brewer recently graduated from Morehead State University with a degree in animal science. After her work this summer as Farm Bureau’s intern, she will be attending the Ohio State University in pursuit of her master’s degree in agricultural education. 

Brewer grew up on her family’s livestock and grain farm in southern Darke County. She is the daughter of Kevin and Sharon Brewer. During her high school career she was very involved in FFA, Student Council, National Honor Society, and the college credit plus program. She continued to stay involved at Morehead State where she participated in Delta Tau Alpha, Collegiate Farm Bureau, Agricultural Ambassadors, and worked and lived on the university farm. These experiences and connections have allowed her to harness and grow her passion for agriculture. Brewer looks forward to meeting and working with Farm Bureau members this summer.

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

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.

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.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
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
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.
