What is Ohio Farm Bureau
We are dedicated to working together with farmers to build a robust agricultural community in Ohio. Join us as we keep the tradition going for the next hundred years.
Ohio Farm Bureau is a grassroots membership organization that is committed to supporting our farm and food community. You can find us involved everywhere from events hosted by county Farm Bureaus to the halls of local, state, and federal government, advocating for policy that supports the future of farming. We care about helping our members achieve success in agriculture.
Ohio Farm Bureau is a 501(c)(5) independent, non-governmental, private, volunteer-member powered organization. For more than 100 years, we have represented food, fiber, and fuel producers at a local level and on a national scale. Our members are our top priority, and we are tuned into the top agricultural issues affecting their lives.
A 26-member board of trustees governs the organization. Meet the state board members
Beginning with our longstanding partnership with Nationwide, Farm Bureau is proud to offer our members exclusive access to business solutions, expertise, and benefits that provide a variety of agricultural business solutions and a competitive advantage. Our Young Agricultural Professionals groups are active across the state and offer many opportunities to get involved with the agricultural community.
We are focused on growing the next generation of farmers and producers in Ohio. Along with trusted organizations like The Ohio State University, FFA and 4-H, Farm Bureau helps to promote career pathways, ag literacy and provide economic opportunity, networking opportunities and leadership development for young farmers. In addition, Ohio Farm Bureau is nurturing a passion for careers in agriculture by way of innovative programming and the many scholarships and grants for students and young farmers that we sponsor through the our foundation.
