The Montgomery County Farm Bureau gave over 150 pounds of McGuire Family Farms chicken to Community Action Mission Project in Farmersville for families in need this Thanksgiving. CAMP began in 1998 to meet the ever increasing needs of the residents of Farmersville, Germantown and New Lebanon in Montgomery County, Ohio.
Each year, CAMP distributes Thanksgiving Box meals to those in need. Montgomery County Farm Bureau has a commitment to support our farm and food community. There is no better way to accomplish that goal than to purchase from a local farm and donate to our local food bank. For instance, we are grateful for the opportunity to work with McGuire Family Farms from Germantown for this project.
You may be asking yourself why chickens instead of the iconic turkey meal for Thanksgiving. Research shows that one in five families will only have two or more people to serve Thanksgiving dinner to. Consequently, most of those families do not have the equipment to cook a large turkey. CAMP including chicken in their Thanksgiving Box meals ensures that all families will have a hearty Thanksgiving meal.

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 Labor Resources
