Join us to meet with county representatives. State Senate Candidate and current State Rep. Susan Manchester, Rep. Tim Barhorst and Rep. Angie King have been invited as our legislative guests. The purpose of this meeting is to interact with our state legislators and discuss issues and concerns of Farm Bureau members. We ask that Farm Bureau members come to this meeting prepared to listen to the legislators and to discuss Farm Bureau priority issues. 

The conference will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a policy discussion, followed by a buffet-style lunch at noon provided by your county Farm Bureau. Following lunch, each legislator will give a brief legislative update and then Farm Bureau members will begin to discuss issues and ask questions. We will adjourn around 1:45 p.m.

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.
