State Senator Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville) received the "Friend of Agriculture" distinction this week for his support of Ohio's agricultural industry as a member of the Ohio Senate. 

"Growing up on my family's farm, I learned the value of hard work and developed a deep appreciation for the important role Ohio's farmers play in their communities and their commitment to responsible stewardship of our precious natural resources," said Balderson. "I am honored to accept this award and will continue to serve as a voice for our farmers who contribute to feeding, clothing and fueling our society every day as part of Ohio’s number one industry."

Leaders from the Hocking County Farm Bureau presented Balderson with the award during their annual meeting held earlier this week.

“Friend of Agriculture” is a distinction for elected officials who have supported the public policy goals representing the interests of the agricultural community.
