I’m Darby Welbaum, and I am very excited to serve as an intern this summer. I just completed my first year of college at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University for an agribusiness and management degree. I have also picked up a minor of civic agriculture and life sciences. My plans are to continue My journey to obtain a bachelor’s degree and eventually enter law school.
I am from West Milton and have always lived in Miami County. The Farm Bureau has supported me with my livestock projects and I hopes to continue that for more generations. I have shown a number of species at fairs including hogs, goats and horses. I hope that this experience will help me be more of an advocate for agriculture and to really make an impact. I am grateful and excited for this opportunity to start working and I can’t wait to meet you all and brighten your day!
I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.Available scholarships

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.Business Solutions
