Hocking County Farm Bureau is in the midst of the 2023 membership campaign, and it is so very important that we remain strong and relevant. As a membership organization whose main role is to make certain that agriculture remains a viable business in the county and the state of Ohio, our voice is strong because of our members. Hocking County Farm Bureau ended the 2022 membership year with 369 total members of which 334 had a direct relationship with agriculture.
The dues amount for Hocking County was raised to $100 per year as a result of the county members voting for the increase at the county annual meeting last September. The dues increase took effect on Dec. 1. As current Farm Bureau members, you have already received or will soon receive your renewal notice. Please renew your membership and allow us to continue to be a strong voice for agriculture. The 2023 membership year ends as of March 31, 2023. Please don’t hesitate to renew your membership.
