5th breakfast with Santa

The Jackson-Vinton Farm Bureau held its 5th Annual Breakfast with Santa event Sunday, Dec. 11 at the Jackson County Fairgrounds. The event was free to the public and featured live animals, Santa and his carriage, Mrs. Claus, and the Grinch. Upon arrival, the Grinch met the attendees. Then families were able to get a breakfast of pancakes, sausage, and milk, while visiting Mrs. Claus and the Grinch in the 4-H building. After finishing breakfast, ornament and cookie decorating stations were available. After a short walk down to the barns, families were able to pet all of the animals. As they approached Santa, they were able to get a picture taken with him and his carriage.

There were so many smiling faces and lots of community support for the Jackson-Vinton Farm Bureau Breakfast with Santa at the Fairgrounds! We truly appreciate all of our FFA kids, local businesses that donated, animal exhibitors, and all of our Farm Bureau volunteers! Without you all, this free event for our community would not be possible!

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.
