Marion County Policy Development Breakfast

Marion County Farm Bureau asks its community leaders and Farm Bureau members to provide input on the issues and policies that need attention in our community, because your experience and perspective is appreciated and valuable to the organization.

Marion County Farm Bureau’s Policy Development Meeting is set for June 11, at 9:30 a.m. at Kramer Farms (Loyers’), 3333 Firstenberger Rd., Marion. The meeting will last no more than two hours and refreshments will be provided. Please make your reservation by May 31 by completing this form, email [email protected] or call the office at 419-747-7488.

Farm Bureau policy resolutions are the backbone of the organization and provide the framework for the organization’s advocacy for family, community and food security. These policy positions guide efforts to address real community issues – issues such as regulations, funding public education and services, environmental protection, animal care, health care, and landowner’s rights. Not only are the policies used to develop programs, projects and advocacy at the state and federal level, but just as importantly, they are used to help guide the yearly plan of work for Marion County Farm Bureau volunteers.

The policy development committee will use this input to provide policy resolutions to the membership at the Marion County Farm Bureau annual meeting. Those approved may be considered at Ohio Farm Bureau and American Farm Bureau annual meetings. If you are unable to attend, you can still participate. Please complete the input survey by May 31. If you have questions email [email protected] or call the office at 419-747-7488.

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.
