Matthew and Michelle are blessed to marry the person on the other side of the fence. Their family farms neighbor one another, which daily reminds them of their tight community upbringing. Their education and backgrounds in agriculture make them excited and prepared to share their passion with a new generation, including their son, Abel.
Blending their experiences from their families’ individual operations, Matthew and Michelle are striving to develop their own outlook on farming and how it can correlate with off-farm careers. They currently participate in livestock, row crop, and hay production with their families. They are open to nontraditional ideas of farming and challenge themselves to be unique in an ever-changing agriculture environment.
Matthew has recently stepped down from 10 years on the county fair board and is looking to broaden his involvement in agriculture. Michelle’s long family history in Farm Bureau makes her proud to continue working with the organization she has grown up in.
The Tobiases represent members in Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Fayette, Franklin, Johnson, Rush, Shelby and Union counties.
