What a journey!

Relentless, eager and happy to represent. These are just some of the terms I would use to describe the Ohio Farm Bureau county presidents who traveled this week to Washington, D.C.

From the time the first gathering met until the time the bus was leaving for the airport to return home, this group of men and women had one goal in mind: to share stories from the farms in their counties. They weren’t afraid to speak up and ask questions even of the current speaker of the House of Representatives.

The group came from all four corners of Ohio and all types of agriculture to represent the farming families back home.

I was impressed with how they explained the problems facing those they were representing and why it is so important to keep the farms in production. They explained it’s a heritage, but more than that, these people are responsible for feeding America.

I thought I would share a few photos of the trip from this week.
