Morrow County Farm Bureau is preparing the organization for the upcoming year and a strong future. Farm Bureau strives to keep strong relationships with elected officials and provide consumers a reliable source of information as well as access to wholesome foods. Look for local projects and activities to connect food and farming and strengthen our community. Watch for statewide initiatives, local programs and new information on resources in the area of policy, industry trends, on-farm business solutions and opportunities for farm and professional growth to strengthen your competitive advantage to ensure your family has its best farm future.
Your Farm Bureau trustees are Seth Romine, President; Eddie Lou Meimer, Vice-President; Kelly Tennant, Secretary/Treasurer; Warren Davis, Nicole Feilon, Doug Franz, Manny Heilman, Todd Jenkins, Julie Logan and Russ Mayer. The county Farm Bureau board of trustees is the very heart and strength of the organization.
There is still one open seat on the Morrow County Farm Bureau board. Locally there are 12 trustee seats on the board. Members, or their spouses, whose dues are paid, are eligible for the office of trustee. All trustees must live, work, or have an active agricultural interest in the county. Trustees are asked to attend board meetings, serve on committees with other volunteers and help direct the work of the county Farm Bureau.
If you’d like more information about Farm Bureau, or better still you’d like to serve as a trustee or help with some of our projects, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can contact one of the county trustees, or contact the county office at (419) 747-7488 or [email protected].
