Farm Bureau of Pitt County-Farmville has established itself as a solid contributor in its 20-plus years in business.

Those contributions recently earned the agency the Farmville Chamber of Commerce’s June Merchant of the Month award.

“I look for giving businesses when selecting a Merchant of the Month, and this office gives back to the community,” Judy Gidley, director of the Farmville chamber, said. “We are proud you are part of our community.”

The staff of the Farmville office, operated by agency manager Carlton Venters, is composed of associate agent Debbie Rose, agents Phillip Irvin and Matt Little, and customer service representatives Lisa Wooten and Harley Lewis.

Venters, also the agency manager of the Winterville office, said it was an honor to receive the Merchant of the Month award.

“I’m excited to know my agents are doing so well in this area,” he said. “This agency runs smooth. Debbie has been with Farm Bureau 25 years-plus.”

Farm Bureau provides auto, life, home, health, crop, commercial and long-term care insurance. The agency also strives to give back to the community it serves, Venters said.

“Farm Bureau is a community business,” he said. “We give back to the farming community and educators.”

Farm Bureau sponsors the annual Pitt County Schools’ Teacher of the Year banquet, promotes health awareness for farmers, sponsors numerous recreation teams, provides agriculture scholarships for students and hosts the Ag in the Classroom and Young Ranchers programs.

“Pitt County Farm Bureau is very active throughout the county,” Irvin said.

Farm Bureau of North Carolina, which began in Pitt County in 1936, garnered the Pinnacle Award this year, recognition for the highest level of operations and retention.

The Farmville agency expanded in 2014, relocating to 3384 E. Wilson St. Robert May and the late Robert Halstead were instrumental in securing the new location, Venters said.

Farm Bureau of Pitt County-Farmville is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and by appointment after hours. For more information, call 753-3321.
