PAINESVILLE, Ohio, March 21, 2024– Lake County Farm Bureau volunteers visited with the Lake County Commissioners on Thursday, March 21, 2024, to promote agriculture in celebration of National Ag Day (March 19, 2024) and National Ag Week (March 17-23, 2024) where the Lake County Commissioners issued a proclamation in honor of National Agriculture Week. The proclamation states “American agriculture is the foundation of our country. It’s the backbone of a healthy and prosperous nation, made possible by the hard work of America’s farms and farm families.”

“Through our annual Ag Day proclamation, we celebrate the backbone of our community – agriculture. From the food on our tables to the clothes on our backs, agriculture touches every aspect of our lives. This event serves as a vital bridge, bringing consumers and producers together to honor and appreciate the hard work and dedication of those who feed and sustain us. Let us unite in celebration, as we cultivate awareness, foster appreciation, and nurture the roots of our agricultural heritage, ensuring that agriculture remains strong for generations to come,” said Mandy Orahood, Organization Director. Please click here to read the entire press release.
