What is Ohio Farm Bureau

Doug WicklineEvery year, Greene County Farm Bureau honors a member who has gone above and beyond to serve the county Farm Bureau as well as the agricultural community. We recognize these individuals at the county annual meeting, and they are recognized in a slide show at the Ohio Farm Bureau annual meeting. This year’s winner is Doug Wickline.

Wickline is a graduate of Xenia High School and The Ohio State University where he majored in ag economics. After graduation, he worked in sales for Studebaker Nursery and returned to to the family garden center, floral shop and landscape operation. 25 years later he became an agriscience instructor and FFA advisor at the Greene County Career Center and Greeneview High School. Doug and his wife, Julie, have three kids: Lauren, Brant and Wesley. They recently became grandparents.

“I really enjoy working with Farm Bureau from the passionate staff, trustees and members who value the importance of agriculture,” he said.

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.
