Storytime with a Farmer Bucyrus

Storytime with a Farmer is a program held bi-monthly, on the third Tuesday (even months) at 6 p.m. in the children’s department of the Bucyrus Public Library.

Storytime with a Farmer BucyrusCrawford County Farm Bureau developed the Storytime with a Farmer program to provide accurate agricultural information to Crawford County youth. This program focuses on toddler to preschool age children. An agriculturally based book, primarily Book of the Year selections of the American Farm Bureau Federation, is read, and poems and related literature are shared. A quick matching game provides a fun opportunity to reinforce the agricultural content of the month. A fun craft or activity is provided to the children with materials to take home, in an effort to continue discussions of the agricultural information they learned.

In order to improve agricultural literacy in Crawford County, the local Farm Bureau has made it a priority to provide educational opportunities to area youth. In 2023, Crawford County Farm Bureau, in conjunction with Crawford County Cattlemen’s Association, donated eight-book sets, written by Amanda Radke, to seven area schools. These books were provided in an effort to ensure accurate agricultural stories are available to students.

Crawford County Farm Bureau, a grassroots membership organization, is committed to supporting our farm and food community. We are dedicated to working together with farmers to build a robust agricultural community in Crawford County. One of the main pillars of Farm Bureau is to create opportunities for growth. In an effort to meet this goal, the Crawford County Farm Bureau develops programs that meet the needs of not only its members, but also the entire county.

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.
