My reasons for going were that it would be a great honor to represent my county, it is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I will be able to report back to my county with any information learned at the capital.Read More
Please join Marion County Farm Bureau and Soil and Water Conservation District for their Annual Meeting on Tues., Aug. 22 at All Occasions Catering in Waldo. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $20, and reservations are due by Aug. 8. Tickets are available at Marion County SWCD and Marion County Farm Bureau office.
Farm Bureau members will vote on guiding policies, and elect trustees and delegates to the Ohio Farm Bureau Annual Meeting for 2024. Impact your community by guiding local activities and state events!
The policies of 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 and trustees help guide the yearly plan of work for Marion County Farm Bureau volunteers.
Are you ready to be more involved?
Farm Bureau is a grassroots membership organization that works to support our state’s food and farm community. The county (local) Farm Bureau is the very heart and strength of the organization. Marion County Farm Bureau is seeking candidates for trustees to be elected at the annual meeting.
If you are interested in making a difference in your community, planning activities, and organizing sessions to help local farmers, please let us know. Nominations can be made from the floor at the meeting.
If you can’t commit the time to be a trustee, we still have a spot for those willing to help! Volunteers are needed at different times throughout the year. You can volunteer for one particular event, participate in many areas or serve on committees. If you are interested in making a difference in your community, please let us know.
Join your friends and neighbors for an evening of food, fun, and entertainment as we celebrate our organization’s successes.
We hope to see you there!
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
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

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.Young Ag Professionals program
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.Groovy Plants Ranch
