Your 2023 Buying Local Directory

The Buying Local Directory is an invaluable community resource connecting us to local goods and services. The directory will be distributed at all Farm Bureau events throughout the year in each of the counties, including county fairs, annual meetings, local outreach programs, Farm Bureau Days, and more! It will be available online as well and will also be mailed to approximately 3,500 Farm Bureau member families in Champaign, Clark, Darke, and Miami counties.

Goods and services listings: Farm Bureau members in Champaign, Clark, Darke and Miami Counties can list their goods and services in the directory. The first three categories are FREE, with additional categories being just $5 each. These listings are for Farm Bureau members only.

Paid advertising spaces: These advertisements provide additional space to promote your business and are available in quarter page increments (1⁄4 page, 1⁄2 page or full page). Ad space is limited and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. 

Local Member Benefits Opportunities

As part of the benefit of being a Farm Bureau member in Champaign, Clark, Darke and Miami counties, the organization offers its members national, state and local discount programs. At the national and state levels, the discounts include hotel savings, equipment discounts, etc.

Local member discounts: At the local level, Farm Bureau members can receive discounts and other benefits from local restaurants, stores, theaters, events, businesses and more. The benefits are redeemable when members present their current Farm Bureau membership card. We are currently expanding our local member benefits program and are inviting you to participate by offering a local member benefit to Farm Bureau members from your business. Some businesses offer a discount off of every purchase ranging from 5% up to 30%. Others offer a buy-one, get-one program, or other promotion. You set the benefit you are comfortable offering, we will promote your business and the member benefit you provide. There is no additional cost to participate!

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.
