WARSAW – Friends of farmers and agriculture had a hearty breakfast of eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, coffee, milk and orange juice at the third annual Farmer’s Share breakfast which was held Saturday morning, Feb. 22 at River View High School.

Rick Haines, President of the Coshocton County Farm Bureau, said, “$1, that’s what the farmer gets for the food we served; bacon, eggs, pancakes, sausage, juice, milk and coffee. The way food prices are going up – the goal is to educate the consumer and put a local face on the food.”

“We have a lot of help to put this event on,” said Haines. “The River View FFA, the Keene Kountry Kids 4-H club, they are a lot of help.”

“We have exhibits from local Ag related businesses and Emily Adams is doing “Agrability, which is a program to help aging farmers stay safe on the farm.”

Kari Burkey, who is the Organizational Director for the Farm Bureau for Coshocton, Licking, Knox, Morgan and Muskingum counties, said, “This is for all the agricultural organizations to work together – it is an outreach event. Hopefully people will learn about the agriculture in the county and listen to our safety speaker.”

“The Farmer’s Share breakfast has two different meanings; one, the amount the farmer receives for all the food that is served today and second – the opportunity for farmers to share their message about how they raise their products with the community.”

The event was sponsored by the Coshocton County Farm Bureau, Endsley Agency, Kuester Implement, J.D. Equipment, Scott Boyer – Nationwide Insurance, Agland Co-op, Coshocton County Soil & Water Conservation District, Coshocton County OSU Extension Office, Ohio Agricultural Equipment, Coshocton Grain Company, Pearl Valley Cheese, Farm Credit Services Mid-America and Kraft Foods.

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
