farm family

One of the biggest challenges that affect farmers’ stress levels can be the family and relationship conflicts that arise on the farm. Clinton County Farm Bureau wanted to create a workshop to aid in those hard conversations.

Guest speaker Andy “Caygeon” Junkin is an expert when it comes to helping farm families get stubborn about moving the farm forward instead of just being stubborn with each other. He was a seventh-generation farmer from Bobcaygeon, Ontario who has seen firsthand how the conflict between farm families can go from bad to worse. After losing his opportunity to farm with his stubborn family, he has made it his mission to help farm families navigate these hard conversations to ensure the future of the family farm.

This workshop will be the one-day investment that will double farm profit, but more importantly double the odds of your family still farming together in 10 years’ time!”

This workshop will be held on Feb. 4 at Wilmington College in the Center for the Sciences and Agriculture Building located on College Street near the football stadium. The workshop will take place in Room 149 and will begin at  9 a.m. to noon. Then there will be an hour lunch break and then resume back at 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. This event is free to members but will cost $100 for non-members.

Limited spots are available for this interactive workshop so RSVP as soon as possible.  Call the Farm Bureau at 937-382-4407 to reserve your spot before the event. Each participant will get a copy of “Bulletproof Your Farm” by Andy Junkin to take home.

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.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
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
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.

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
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

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.
