Anyone can be a member of Ohio Farm Bureau. Here’s how Farm Bureau works on your behalf:
Keeping You Informed Farmer members receive Buckeye Farm News and all members receive an Our Ohio magazine subscription. Members gain access to informational seminars and workshops, learn where to buy and sell local foods, and enjoy agricultural experiences like farm tours, cooking and dining events and more.
Shaping Good Government As a grassroots organization, Farm Bureau is your legislative voice. The organization works closely with state and national policymakers on important issues like personal property rights, renewable energy, crime, education, taxes, and more. And because of Farm Bureau’s strong legislative reputation with voters and policymakers, 95 percent of the legislators Farm Bureau deemed a “Friend of Agriculture” were elected or re-elected last year.
Protecting You and Your Property Members are covered in the Property Protection Program, which includes a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction for felony crimes committed on a member’s property.
Stretching Your Budget Farm Bureau membership offers dozens of discounts and savings through member benefit providers. Members can save on Nationwide Insurance products, select GM vehicles, select Case IH tractors, CAT agricultural construction equipment, Choice Hotels and Grainger catalog items, and much more.
Member Savings Advantage is a discount program with members-only savings at restaurants and retailers across Ohio, as well as national brands such as Target, AMC Theaters, Disney and Carnival Cruises. The Ohio Farm Bureau has partnered with a national discount program to now offer its members exclusive savings up to 25 percent, 40 percent and even 50 percent off on dining, shopping and more, with deals in your neighborhood or wherever you go nationwide.
Connecting Buyers and Sellers Farm Bureau members can promote their products through our Buying Local Directory. This guide helps consumers find local members who operate a retail outlet selling their own agricultural products or offering agricultural experiences, as well as local businesses that support our organization through membership.
