*Eligibility Requirement


Whether it’s supporting 4-H and agricultural education programs, fighting for fair taxes, defending landowner rights or ensuring that new policies allow families to continue to farm, we’re here to work on your behalf. Your membership helps Ohio Farm Bureau engage at the local, state and national levels on the decisions that impact farming and communities. In addition, members receive exclusive access to insights about current issues and a platform to share their views. As a grassroots organization, Farm Bureau is guided by the direct input of members who have a vested interest in the success of the state’s more than $100 billion food and agricultural economy.

We’re proud of our 100-year legacy of delivering results for our members. Our accomplishments have ranged from the establishment of farm cooperatives and companies like Nationwide to the development of Ohio’s Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) program. Farm Bureau works to support important programs like crop insurance and agriculture’s sales tax exemption. We helped eliminate Ohio’s estate tax, safeguarded the opportunity for children to work on farms, and supported funding for Ohio State University Extension and 4-H.

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.
