Emily Rudd

Emily Rudd is the organization director for Clinton, Greene, Fayette, and Warren counties. In this role, Emily serves as a liaison between the state and county Farm Bureaus. She assists her counties to organize policy efforts, education outreach, and membership. 

Rudd is from north central, Ohio where she grew up on a small farm. She was an active Young Agricultural Professionals member in Crawford County where she traveled to Washington, DC for Ohio Farm Bureau’s annual leaders trip, and to Ag Day at the Capital.

Rudd is a 2022 graduate of Wilmington College where she majored in agriculture with a concentration in animal science. Rudd’s Farm Bureau background started as a Crawford County scholarship recipient and summer intern. She also interned for the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association and Ohio Beef Council. Rudd has a deep passion for grassroots agriculture and advocating for farmers starting at the local level. 

A fun fact about Emily is that she showed market lambs and goats when she was in 4-H and FFA.

Emily believes your membership is extremely beneficial to Ohio agriculture. Through your membership dues, Farm Bureau is able to advocate for farmers right here in the Buckeye State. As a grassroots organization, Farm Bureau starts at the local level with everyday farmers to positively impact agriculture. Not only is change made through membership, but communities of agriculturalists are built. Through these ever-growing communities and agricultural support, we can continue to benefit Ohio agriculture!

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.
