The agriculture community of Shelby County is excited to announce the first-ever Rural-Urban Luncheon Sept. 17. This unique meal will feature agriculture in Shelby County and promote the contributions of the agriculture industry to our local economy.

Held at the Mike Bensman Family Farm on 9570 St. Rt. 29 North in Sidney, participants will enjoy a locally sourced meal sponsored by Koenig Equipment, Fertilizer Dealer Supply, Bambauer Fertilizer and Seed, along with the Shelby County Pork Producers, Shelby County Cattlemen’s Association and Shelby County Dairy Boosters.

In addition to the great meal, we will hear from our featured speaker Brandi Buzzard-Frobose. Brandi is a Kansas rancher, writer, blogger, and agriculture advocate. She will discuss the evolving landscape of the agriculture industry in the US and how we can all work together to understand where our food comes from now and in the future.

The luncheon will begin at 11 a.m. and an RSVP must be received to attend by Friday, Sept. 10. To attend, please call the Shelby County OSU Extension office at 937-498-7239 or email [email protected].

Proudly hosted by the Shelby County Farm Bureau, Shelby County Soil and Water Conservation District, OSU Extension-Shelby County, USDA Farm Service Agency, and the Shelby County Commissioners, we hope you will join us to learn more about agriculture in Shelby County.

Through its policies it brings together people in the agricultural community and invests in building vibrant communities that support agriculture.

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, D.C.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
