The cold weather and snow couldn’t stop our Farm Bureau volunteers from attending the 4 County Membership Kickoff on Jan. 25, 2022. The event was held at the newly renovated Tappan Marina with catering by the Dennison Yard.

Over 60 volunteers were in attendance to learn about the new member campaign, timeline, goals and prizes. Ohio Farm Bureau Vice President of Membership Paul Lyons (pictured above) and Senior Director of Membership, Sales and Marketing Adam Carney both spoke to the membership workers on the value of membership and the opportunities provided to Farm Bureau members.

The volunteers are excited get the campaign started and share their Farm Bureau experiences with the goal of growing the organization.

If you are interested in information about this year’s membership campaign or you have questions about Ohio Farm Bureau, please contact the Carroll, Harrison, Jefferson & Tuscarawas County office at 330-339-7211.

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

Growing our Generation
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.

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.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
