A successful membership campaign begins with members who have a passion for Farm Bureau and can channel that passion into a conversation. A positive experience with Ohio Farm Bureau can naturally generate an opportunity for engaged conversation with anyone, including emerging leaders, young agricultural professionals and students.

To kickoff the 2022 volunteer membership campaign, Ohio Farm Bureau is hosting a virtual statewide membership rally Jan. 20 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. to help prepare members to have those important conversations that lead to new members in the organization.

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.
