Marion County Farm Bureau asks its community leaders and Farm Bureau members to provide input on the issues and policies that need attention in our community, because your experience and perspective is appreciated and valuable to the organization.
Marion County Farm Bureau’s Policy Development Meeting is set for June 6, at 9:30 a.m. in the Garden Room at The Harding Centre located at 267 West Center Street, Marion. The meeting will last no more than two hours and refreshments will be provided. In order to get an accurate count of guests, please make your reservation by May 26, by completing this form, email [email protected] or call the office at 419-747-7488.
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 Marion 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
