Community Member

“Farm Bureau members love the land, they love animals, they have a strong sense of community by creating partnerships to achieve a common goal, and that has been one of the themes of how I run my life. Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization that promotes positive change in the ag community and is not afraid of hard work to get the job done.”

Ohio Farm Bureau’s mission

Ohio Farm Bureau’s mission is to forge a partnership between farmers and consumers. This means advocating for Ohio’s farm families on issues that help them in business and, in turn, provide consumers a wide variety of food choices. Since 1919, Ohio Farm Bureau has worked to make Ohio a great place to call home—and it doesn’t matter if you’re a farmer who produces food or a customer who purchases it, there’s a place for you in Farm Bureau.
