Three individuals were recognized earlier this month for their lifetime achievements to agriculture during the 101st annual meeting of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. Among the honorees was a Delaware County farmer with a lifetime history of service to the farming community and civic causes.

Tom Price was honored with the Distinguished Service Award.

Also honored were long-time Nationwide leader Steve Rasmussen, who received the Ezra C. Anstaett Heritage Award, and OFBF Sr. Director of Corporate Communications Joe Cornely, who received the Agricultural Communicator Award, the second time he has been so honored. Farm Bureau volunteers, county organizations and state leaders nominated candidates for the awards.

Price, a Delaware County Farm Bureau member, is a sixth-generation farmer who has a hog, cattle and compost business. He volunteers in many capacities statewide, including as a member of the Ohio Expositions Commission and the Ohio Soil and Water Conservation Commission. He also has served on the Delaware Area Chamber of Commerce, Delaware Community Foundation, Ohio Pork Industry Strategic Planning Committee, Ohio Beef Council, Ohio State University Extension Advisory Committee and Delaware County Farmland Preservation Task Force. He is a member of the Ohio Agricultural Hall of Fame and the Delaware County Agricultural Hall of Fame. He and his family have received numerous accolades, including the Ohio Conservation Farm Family Award, Ohio Cattlemen’s Environmental Stewardship Award and Ohio Pork Producers’ Service Award.
