Geauga County Fair

The fair is quickly approaching and that means we are busy planning our fair tent. We love sharing the story of agriculture with our community, and we couldn’t do that without all of you. We are once again looking for volunteers to help make our tent memorable for all who visit.

Agriculture is vital to all our lives, and it’s so important that we share that with others. Did you know that the majority of Americans are at least three generations removed from the farm? It’s so sad that so many people won’t ever experience the life that we all love.

Anyone who volunteers in the tent will receive a FREE T-shirt and a day pass ticket for entry into the fair. Tickets and T-shirts are only guaranteed for volunteers who sign up by Friday, Aug. 19 due to getting tickets and shirts distributed.

If you have volunteered in the past you know the routine. If you are new, just review the options listed and choose the time slot(s) that best fit your schedule. 

We’re using SignUp.com (the leading online SignUp and reminder tool) to organize our upcoming SignUps. Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

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.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
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
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.
