electric vehicles

The first electric vehicle was created in 1832. Needless to say the technology has come a long way since that time, and now there are more than 10 million electric vehicles on the road. The vast majority of them are on California, New York, Florida and Texas highways, but when will we start seeing them in rural areas and even put to use on farms? On this Our Ohio Weekly, we take a look into electric vehicles and agriculture.

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.

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.
