During the county annual meeting this past September, Fairfield County Farm Bureau members changed the county code to decrease the number of board trustee members from 15 to 12. There are still two trustee seats that remain unfilled; one representing District 4, which includes Greenfield and Hocking Townships, and one at-large seat. Fairfield County Farm Bureau normally meets on the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in Ricketts Hall on the Fairfield County Fairgrounds in Lancaster. If you are interested in serving on the board of trustees, please contact the county Farm Bureau office at 740-474-6284.
During their annual reorganization meeting in November, the Fairfield County Farm Bureau board of trustees elected members to serve as board officers. The newly elected officers for 2023 are
Vice President – Rich Lamp, of Clearcreek Township
Treasurer – Trish Preston, of Violet Township, and
Secretary – Derek Burns, of Liberty Township
The president’s office is voted on in the spring of each year with the president-elect taking over the duties at the county’s annual meeting in the fall. Currently, Lynne Schultz of Rushcreek Township serves as the county Farm Bureau president.
