We are thankful for the service of our members who serve on the Delaware County board of trustees.

Jill DavisJill Davis resides in Delaware and is originally from Port Clinton. She is a partner at Gar-Mar Farms, founded Fresh 4 You Farm Market in 2020, and has been the Concord Township fiscal officer since 2006. Jill’s favorite part of being on the board is promoting agriculture in our local community. She has ridden, shown, and/or raised horses since age 6, and was a 4-H advisor for 25+ years.

Kate Hornyak is Delaware County OSU Extension program coordinator. Throughout her time in Delaware, she is pursuing her master’s degree in agricultural and Extension Education. This will allow her to focus on her personal development toward her future goals of becoming a better communicator, and leader for the Delaware County Extension office. She currently lives away from her family farm in Geauga County, but spends a lot of time traveling to Chardon and running the farm alongside her brother, Evan Hornyak. They plan to expand the agricultural tourism side of the business.

Kate Hornyak“This is something I am very passionate about because I love families to be able to experience the way a farm operates when they visit. Being in this wonderful production over the years has opened my eyes, allowing me to see that not everyone is as fortunate as I am. By being in agriculture, I can now lead in my community and teach the next generation about this outstanding industry we are a part of.”

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.
