The Central Ohio Farm Bureaus held their Women in Ag Brunch March 5, 2022. This annual event recognizes achievements in agriculture and the contributions of women to our local farm community. 

Connie Skinner

Sarah Huffman, executive director of the Office of Farmland Preservation with the Ohio Department of Agriculture, was the keynote speaker for the event. Huffman is responsible for overseeing the state’s efforts to partner with landowners, local government, Soil and Water Conservation Districts and land trusts to permanently preserve Ohio farms in agricultural production, strengthening Ohio’s No. 1 industry, food and agriculture. 

Connie Skinner of Delaware County was this year’s honoree. A dedicated Farm Bureau member and volunteer, Skinner has been instrumental in many projects the county has done over the years, including involvement with the Delaware County Hunger Alliance, Benefit in the Barn and the county fair. She was very excited and grateful for the nomination and recognition. 



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.
