The Vinton County Commissioners recently recognized the importance of agriculture when they voted to observe March 20-24 as National Agriculture Week.

The vote was taken Monday, March 6 when the commissioners met with Ohio Farm Bureau Federation Organization Director Kim Harless, Program Assistant Lisa Tribby, Jackson-Vinton Farm Bureau President Jon Hensler and Board of Trustees members Jennefer Saxour and John Underwood.

During the presentation, Harless spoke of how food and fiber are produced; the value of agriculture's role in a strong economy; the role agriculture plays in safe, abundant and affordable products; and career opportunities associated with agriculture and food-related business. The agriculture and food preparation industry is big in Ohio, as the sector generates billions of dollars for the economy.

Commissioner Mike Bledsoe agreed with all of those points, but especially on the career aspect, as the county is on the eve of ending its food-desert status. The county is gearing up for the Monday, March 20 groundbreaking of Campbell's Market. The new grocery store will employ 30 new workers.

Bledsoe stated the county appreciates organizations such as 4-H and Future Farmers of America (FFA). He also thanked Harless and her group for the visit and for their small basket of food they presented the commissioners.
