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 Insurance 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.
Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

Growing our Generation
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.

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.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
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
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.
