Crawford County Farm Bureau asks its community leaders and Farm Bureau members to provide input on the issues and policies you think need attention in our community, because your experience and perspective is appreciated and valuable to the organization.
The Crawford County Farm Bureau Policy Development Meeting is set for June 27, at 11:30 a.m. at the Crawford Success Center, 130 N. Walnut St., Bucyrus. A boxed lunch will be provided. In order to get an accurate count of guests, please make your reservation by June 19. Click here, email [email protected] or call the office at (800) 327-6055.
The policies of the Farm Bureau are the backbone of the organization. They provide the framework through which we advocate for family, community and food security. They help guide efforts to address real community issues – issues such as regulations, funding public education and services, environmental protection, animal care, health care, landowner’s rights, and community planning. These policies are used to develop programs, projects and advocacy at the state and federal level, but just as importantly, are used to help guide the yearly plan of work for Crawford County Farm Bureau volunteers.
The Farm Bureau policy development committee will use this input to provide policy resolutions to the membership at our annual meeting. Those approved will go on to the Ohio Farm Bureau, and they may move on to the American Farm Bureau.
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 Labor Resources
