The Farm Bureau

With over 230,000 members, the Ohio Farm Bureau is a federation of 87 county Farm Bureaus and is Ohio's largest general farm organization. Farm Bureau members in every county volunteer in the state to serve on boards and committees working on legislation, regulations, and issues which affect agriculture, rural areas, and Ohio citizens in general. These hard-working members are supported by a staff of professionals working to assist them in their action-oriented activities. This website supports the boards of Cuyahoga, Erie, Huron, and Lorain Counties.
