2024 Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Golf Outing

The 2024 Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Golf Invitational raised over $110,000 for foundation scholarships, grants and programs that help enhance agricultural communities and support careers in agriculture, setting an all-time record for the annual event.

Participation in the foundation’s annual golf invitational supports the future of Ohio agriculture. The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation believes that for agriculture to continue to grow and thrive, it must be cultivated. Through its work, the foundation is building a steady flow of young people with the knowledge, training and skills to enhance the industry.

We are so grateful for the support, engagement and awareness this event brings to the agriculture industry as a whole,” said Amy McCormick, Ohio Farm Bureau foundation board president. “Raising over $110,000 allows the foundation to continue our focus to inspire and educate the next generation of agricultural professionals through scholarships, innovative programming, and grants.”

The event was held June 24 at Scioto Reserve Country Club in Powell and hosted 180 golfers. The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation offers a special thank you to the event sponsors, especially Nationwide, who served as the title sponsor for the event. This successful day would not have been possible without the generous support of sponsors and participants.

The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation, a 501(c) (3) charitable, nonprofit organization, understands the need to inspire innovation and cultivate investment in Ohio’s farm and food community. Learn more by visiting ofbf.org/foundation.

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.

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.

The plan we are on is great. It’s comparable to my previous job's plan, and we are a sole proprietor.

We work terrifically with the Ashtabula County Farm Bureau, hosting at least one to two outreach town hall events every year to educate new farmers and existing farmers on traditional CAUV and woodlands.

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.
