6th Annual Breakfast with Santa

The Jackson-Vinton Farm Bureau held its 6th Annual Breakfast with Santa event Sunday, Dec. 10 at the Jackson County Fairgrounds. The event was free to the public and featured live animals, Santa and his carriage, Mrs. Claus, and the Grinch. Upon arrival, the Grinch met the attendees. Then families received a free breakfast of pancakes, sausage, and milk, while visiting Mrs. Claus and the Grinch in the 4-H building. After finishing breakfast, a reindeer food station was available for children to make their own reindeer food to put out on Christmas Eve. After a short walk down to the barns, families were able to pet all of the animals. As they approached Santa, they were able to get a picture taken with him and his carriage.

There were so many smiling faces and lots of community support for the Jackson-Vinton Farm Bureau Breakfast with Santa at the fairgrounds! We truly appreciate all of our FFA kids, local businesses that donated, animal exhibitors, and all of our Farm Bureau volunteers! Without you all, this free event for our community would not be possible! To see more photos from this event visit our Facebook page.

The Jackson-Vinton Farm Bureau board would like to thank the following farms and businesses. Without their continued support, this event would not be possible:

Jackson County Senior Fair Board, United Dairy of West Virginia, Joel Wood: Infinity Insurance Solutions, Jerry’s Jamestown Market, Virgil Hamilton Insurance, Tina Steel McKee Photographer, LaRosa’s Pizzeria, Grundy Hill Farm, Jones-Stephens Insurance, McDonalds of Jackson, Wellston, Oak Hill & McArthur, A&A Truckstop, Mary Ball, Ohio Valley Bank, Valley View Farms, Oak Hill FFA, Jackson FFA, Wellston FFA, Jackson Elks Lodge #466, Mary Riegel and Tara Riley, Corbett R Caudill Chipping, Jackson Ag Service, and Atomic Credit Union. 

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.
