The Logan County Farm Bureau is excited to announce that the fifth year of the Logan County Agriculture Impact Fund grants is now available!  The grant program was created by and continued to be funded with dollars raised from the Logan County Farm Bureau Agriculture Impact Fund Reverse Raffle event held each spring.

The purpose of the grant fund is to support projects and events that will expand and grow agriculture’s footprint in the county and encourage youth development in agriculture. Grants will be offered to any organization in Logan County that promotes the wellbeing, and enrichment of youth involved in the agriculture community in our county. Grants will be evaluated on a competitive basis and projects submitted for the grant MUST be completed by the 2023 year-end.

Grant Timeline
  • Submissions may begin after Sept. 1, 2022.
  • Applications will be due Oct. 14, 2022.
  • Upon submission, grants will go through two review committees.
  • Recipients will be notified by Dec. 1, regarding their success in the application process.
  • Completed project reports will be due to the committee by Nov. 30 the following year and final payment will be processed.

Our hope is to award as many projects as we can in order to see agriculture’s footprint expand in the county. In the previous two years of the program, the county was able to award over $46,000 in grant dollars, for agriculture projects in our county. 

The grant application is available online or by request. Please direct questions to the county’s Organization Director Jill Smith at [email protected] regarding the application or call the Farm Bureau office at 877-775-7642 for assistance.

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.

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
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.
