Next year, Farm Bureau news and information will be consolidated into Our Ohio magazine, which will continue to be mailed to all members six times a year. Members will no longer receive the print edition of Buckeye Farm News.
“As the costs for printing and mailing publications continues to increase, we need to balance using member resources efficiently while still providing members with high quality communications,” said Pat Petzel, vice president of communications for Ohio Farm Bureau.
While this issue of Buckeye Farm News will be the last in its current form, our commitment to communicating the information members need to know is stronger than ever.
In 2023, the news pages in Our Ohio will be expanded to include much of what historically has been included in Buckeye Farm News. The magazine includes, among other items of interest, long-form feature stories that focus on items important to our members and how they impact farmers and rural Ohio as a whole.
For the latest, up-to-the-minute news and information, members can rely on Buckeye Farm e-News, which is emailed to members every Friday, as well as the Our Ohio Weekly radio program and podcast, which is broadcast throughout the state.
Additionally, content is constantly being updated on our website, OhioFarmBureau.org, and various social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and TikTok. Please be sure your current email address is updated on your membership profile on our website so you won’t miss any news you need to know. Visit ofbf.org/membership/login.
“Our organization has made significant investments in digital communications in recent years, which includes upgrades of our website, member database, email technology and more,” Petzel said. ”At the same time, our investment in print communications, including supporting county Farm Bureaus with their projects, is also significant. We continue to work to serve all members with their various communications preferences.”
Finally, members can sign up for a free subscription to our sister publication, Ohio’s Country Journal, where Farm Bureau news is regularly featured.
As Farm Bureau evolves, so do our modes of communication. However, what does not change is our commitment to our mission: “Working together for Ohio farmers to advance agriculture and strengthen our communities.”
