The American Farm Bureau Federation County Activities of Excellence awards celebrate unique, local, volunteer-driven programs that serve as models of innovation for local program development. The winning counties received a grant to fund participation in the Farm Bureau CAE Showcase at the 2022 American Farm Bureau Convention and Trade Show in January in Atlanta, Georgia, pictured above. Volunteers were congratulated by American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall, center.

Here are some additional photos from the American Farm Bureau Annual Convention.

Pickaway and Delaware counties purchased 43 head of locally raised hogs and beef cattle from member-producers and junior fair exhibitors. 10,500 pounds of meat was processed at a local packer as a part of its rehabilitation workforce development program. The supply of freezer pork and beef was distributed to 15 food banks in the counties during COVID-19, at a time when food banks were in desperate need of healthy proteins to feed friends and neighbors.

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.
