Hamilton, Montgomery, and Preble County Farm Bureaus is pleased to announce its newly hired County Office Administrator Carissa Knapp. 

As county office administrator, Knapp will assist the counties and the organization director in developing, maintaining, and executing successful programs and services that meet the needs of members with efficiency and accuracy. She will be responsible for developing the membership marketing plan as well as creating content for our website and social media. Knapp will be instrumental in serving the needs of our members and building relationships which could result in new memberships.

Knapp is a resident of Farmersville and recently graduated with an associate’s degree in event planning from Sinclair. Upon graduation, she opened her own part-time business called byLouise to assist her clients with planning every step of their important life events. Knapp has five years of experience as a sales and marketing manager, and worked for Kosins Tents & Events where she established relationships with festivals and business accounts, designing promotional materials and working with other vendors for Dayton-area events.

We are excited to have Carissa’s unique experience. Her belief in the role that agriculture plays within our community aligns her with our Farm Bureau mission of “working together for Ohio farmers to advance agriculture and strengthen our communities.”

Please help us welcome Carissa Knapp to the field of agriculture and our team at the Farm Bureau.

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.
