Marion County 2023 Farmers CARE breakfastAgriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis, but many people don’t think about that. This event provided an opportunity for the community to come together, talk with local farmers. Ag Week is about recognizing the contribution of agriculture in our everyday lives. Marion County Farm Bureau hopes every American will
     • Understand how food and fiber products are produced.
     • Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
     • Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
     • Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry.

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.
