The 2022 Ohio Farm Bureau Membership Campaign has come to an end! Through the campaign, we shared stories about current board trustees, the events and competitions that they have participated in, and what they value in their Farm Bureau membership! We highlighted a variety of our group members which are businesses that provide discounted Farm Bureau memberships to their employees so they can receive all of the benefits! Speaking of benefits, there are so many that you can take advantage of as a Farm Bureau member – from shopping savings, rental cars, hotels, restaurants and the list goes on! 

In reflection of the 2022 Membership Campaign the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation’s Vice President over membership, Paul Lyons, shared, “Your dedication to telling your story of why you belong to the organization and the value it brings to you and your community is so very appreciated. Over 500 volunteers signed over 4,000 members during the campaign. Unfortunately, we did not meet our overall campaign goals this year, but I am still very proud of the work that all of you did in what proved to be a very difficult membership year.”

Here locally, the Adams, Brown, Clermont and Highland County Farm Bureau board trustees are eager to share all of the amazing things you can do with your membership and are so excited to see what the next membership campaign brings!

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.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
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
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

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.

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.
