Highland Farmers Market

The Highland County Farm Bureau took to the Farmer’s Market May 28 to connect with members and the community. The adults who came through the event really enjoyed conversation about the benefits and stance of the Highland County Farm Bureau. They also enjoyed taste testing the rhubarb crisp and many planned to use the recipe card to create their own. Additional recipe cards for roasted asparagus and sautéed eggplant were available for pickup. The children really enjoyed painting flower pots and planting flowers, as well as playing in the corn pit. 

Organization Director Heather Utter, said, “The event was a good collaboration between the Highland County Farmers Market and the Highland County Farm Bureau. We really enjoyed the opportunity to connect with the local community to share more about what we are doing locally to support our farmers.”

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
