Holmes Soil & Water Conservation Distict is fortunate to have an outstanding board of county supervisors. They are always interested in hearing from others in the Holmes County area about their conservation needs and concerns.
Jason has served as a Holmes SWCD supervisor since 2006. He and his wife Erika have two daughters, Rebecca and Andrea. Jason is employed by a grain farm that raises 1,800 acres of corn, soybeans, and wheat. In his spare time, Jason enjoys hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family.
For 32 years, Harold has owned and operated Harold's Equipment. He has been in the farm-equipment business since high school and grew up on a dairy farm in Wayne County. He worked with many farmers in eastern Ohio helping to develop and install manure storage and milk house/parlor-waste systems. Harold also serves as President of the Ohio Federation of Soil & Water Conservation Districts, and attends New Point Community Church. Harold and his wife Sue have three children and seven grandchildren that all live in Holmes County.
Serving on his first term as a Holmes SWCD supervisor, Errick is the general manager at Moore’s Lawn & Garden in Millersburg. He is a lifelong resident of Holmes County. He grew up around his grandparents’ farms and continues to help out at Big Run Farms near Killbuck in their busy season. Errick said is looking forward to being a SWCD supervisor to promote healthy farming practices in the county into the future. He lives in the Big Prairie/Lakeville area and enjoys hunting, golfing, and RZR riding with family and friends.
Jason grew up surrounded by the farming industry as part of a family that began a tree nursery when he was young. Through his work toward the rank of Eagle Scout (2012) he earned an even greater appreciation for conservation and resource management. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from OSU (Surveying minor), he returned to the area accepting a position at Tekton Engineering, LLC in Berlin.
Jason shares a family operation farming 350 acres and tending a cow/calf beef herd in Ripley Township. Nearly all of the acres are managed as no-till with extensive use of cover crops. Off the farm, Jason works in equipment sales for Ohio Ag Equipment. One of the things that attracted him to the role of Supervisor is keeping the farm community involved and informed.
