Adams County Farm Bureau

Keith HolbrookEffective in August, Keith Holbrook will serve as Adams County Farm Bureau president.  Keith grew up working with his grandfather on his farm in Adams County. Leaving the farm to pursue his education, he earned his doctorate of veterinary medicine from Ohio State University in 2012. After working solely as a veterinarian for several years, he recognized that his heart was at home on the farm. In 2018, he started farming part time with hopes of growing the operation to a full time endeavor in the years ahead. He currently works 420 acres with corn, soybeans and cover crops. Keith, his wife, Laura, and their four children live in Winchester Township. 

We would like to also thank Kristy Watters, outgoing president of Adams County Farm Bureau for her countless hours of volunteer time in service and leadership.  Kristy served the board as president for three years, and her ongoing leadership as a trustee will continue to be valued and appreciated for the years to come.

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

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
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.

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.

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.
