2022 Adams County Annual Meeting

The Adams County Farm Bureau and Adams Soil and Water Conservation District held their annual meeting at the Adams County Fairgrounds Aug. 9 at 6 p.m. Homemade ice cream and snow cones were served to those in attendance. Attendees enjoyed fellowship and catching up with one another prior to the meeting being called to order. We were joined by several county office representatives, elected officials and long-time members! The evening included a short business meeting, where members elected trustees and state annual meeting delegates, and voted on policy and code changes. The organization is proud to recognize our volunteers and scholarship winners from the past year and to share the past year’s highlights!  The evening concluded after hearing from Nathan Brown, District 20 Trustee for the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, as he recapped the year’s highlights.

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

Available scholarships
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
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.

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.
