2023 Fayette County Farm to Fork

2023 Fayette County Farm to ForkThe annual Fayette County Farm Bureau’s Farm to Fork event was held July 8. This year the committee decided to bring this event to town to expand the reach of this event. The event was enjoyed by over 200 participants. The evening began with a Mix and Mingle portion. This allowed participants to connect with local producers and learn about ingredients that would later be used in the meal. Participants watched a demonstration on how to make butter and were welcomed to join in by creating their own butter boards at their tables. 

The celebrity chef contest was a big success again this year. Werner’s BBQ won the contest with their famous broccoli salad. Farm Bureau was able to serve a steak dinner to each guest as a result of an Ohio Beef Council grant. The night concluded with a silent auction to raise money for this year’s philanthropy partner Miami Trace FFA. All proceeds from this event will go toward the Miami Trace FFA Barn. 

Fayette County Farm Bureau looks forward to hosting this event again next year and hopes to reach an even larger audience. This allows the board to connect with a variety of people to advocate and share agriculture and Farm Bureau with participants!

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.
