Butler Hamilton Montgomery Preble counties Ohio

Butler, Hamilton, Montgomery and Preble County Farm Bureaus are pleased to announce their newly hired Membership Marketing Specialist Elliana Hurst. 

In her role, Hurst will provide leadership and development of member projects. She will work with county leaders to provide direction on county program development and implementation. In addition, she will be responsible for assisting in the enhancement of relationships with Nationwide, legislators, governmental agencies, agribusinesses, local businesses, affinity partners and other community groups.  

Hurst is a resident of Lewisburg, Ohio and a 2023 Graduate of Twin Valley South High School. She currently is working on her associates degree at Edison State Community College, majoring in agricultural communications and marketing. Hurst was a past Twin Valley South FFA member, acting as president and treasurer as well as leading several committees. Her past roles in retail and customer service at the Rodeo Shop in Eaton, Ohio and at Co-Alliance in Richmond, Indiana have given her skills that are important to her role at Farm Bureau. 

We are excited to have Elliana’s experience. Her belief in the role that agriculture plays within our community aligns her with our Farm Bureau mission: “Working together for Ohio farmers to advance agriculture and strengthen our communities.”

Please help us welcome Elliana Hurst to our team at Farm Bureau.

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.
