Great Lakes Agricultural Labor Services, LLC

Based in Michigan, Great Lakes Agricultural Labor Services, LLC is a full service agent specialized in securing agricultural workers through the H-2A visa program. The company has been applying the standards of the U.S. Department of Labor to farms since 2015 and has become the largest H-2A filer in Michigan. The team has navigated the H-2A process many times, and on-site visits ensure that employers understand the process and regulations.

A self-funded medical plan for Ohio Farm Bureau members

As today’s farmers and small businesses with employees continue to search for health coverage options, the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation has taken action to help employers save on these expenses. The Ohio Farm Bureau Health Benefits Plan can lead to more rate stability and is a smart solution that offers potential savings for Ohio farmers and small businesses with 1-50 employees.

Ohio Farm Bureau Property Protection Program

The Ohio Farm Bureau Property Protection Program has been in existence for more than 40 years. It began in 1971 with the purpose of deterring crime in rural areas. Over time, the program has been updated, particularly increasing the reward to keep pace with current economic values. 

Effective Jan. 1, 2020, the Ohio Farm Bureau Property Protection Program will pay a $5,000 reward to anyone providing information to law enforcement that leads to the arrest and conviction of persons for eligible property crimes committed against a Farm Bureau member’s property.

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

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
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
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.

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.

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.
