In Crawford County, Farm Bureau looks for ways to impact and improve the community. We strive to keep strong relationships with elected officials so that rural interests are not neglected when rules are being made. We want consumers to have reliable source of information as well as access to wholesome foods.
Above all, the county Farm Bureau board of trustees is the very heart and strength of the organization. Locally there are 16 trustee seats on the board. Active Members or Young Active Members, or their spouses, whose dues are paid, are eligible for the office of trustee. All trustees must live, work, or have an active agricultural interest in the county.
There are seven open seats on the Crawford County Farm Bureau board. Trustees are asked to attend board meetings, serve on committees with other volunteers and help direct the work of the county Farm Bureau. Our next meeting is Nov. 16 and new volunteers and ideas are welcome.
If you’d like more information about Farm Bureau, or better still you’d like to serve as a trustee or help with some of our projects, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can contact one of the county trustees, or contact the county office at (419) 747-7488 or [email protected].
