Barn at Night

Shelby County Farm Bureau is working with the Amos Memorial Library for a “Pajama Party for Barn at Night” book reading on March 24 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Meet author Michelle Houts and stay for her reading of this newly released book. Don’t forget to take part in the snacks, kids’ crafts and other activities about agriculture! We also will have books on sale for purchase.

Barn at Night is a great way to learn more about the magic and adventures that happen on farms, even at night! The book follows a father and a daughter as they care for farm animals in two visits to the barn on a working farm. The book features cows, barn cats, horses, and other farm animal friends and their babies’ names, with fun vocabulary building for young readers – and it ends with the beautiful surprise arrival of a new foal. Illustrated by Jen Betton in glowing watercolors, “Barn at Night” makes a wonderful bedtime story that is great to share as a family.

The book is authored by Celina resident Michelle Houts who has authored 12 books. We hope you will join us! Please call our office at 877-775-7642 to learn more. 

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.

Leadership development
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.
