Aultman Running for Fair Board

Thank You for all the support and your continued support, and Congratulations to all those that were elected to the Darke County Fairboard this year. - Matt

In just a few short days the 155th Great Darke County Fair will be upon us. Have you ever wondered who is responsible for making our county fair great? Well it is the Senior Fairboard of the Darke County Agricultural Society.

This year running to be a part of this board is Matt Aultman, of Stelvideo in Adams Township. Matt is a 30 year old lifelong resident of Darke County. He is married to Morgan (Rismiller) Aultman, 30, and they have two children Sophia, 4, and William, 2. Matt and his family are strongly rooted to both the agricultural community and the fair. Matt has raised calves and sheep for 20 plus years, specializing now in club lambs for 4-Hers and dairy steers for freezer beef and 4-H projects. Matt also farms 500+ acres along with his parents, David and Lisa Aultman, and grandparents, Larry and Doris Aultman. Matt is further anchored to the agricultural community as a grain buyer and feed expert at Keller Grain and Feed, Inc, located in Horatio. Matt is an active member of the Darke County Chamber of Commerce where here is the treasurer and Chair of the Agriculture Committee. He is a trustee of the Darke County Farm Bureau and an advisor for Grade A Kids 4-H Club. Matt has had an extensive history with the Darke County Fair through his ten years of 4-H, where he exhibited many projects in the Youth building and showed rabbits and sheep and ended with the honor of being Outstanding Junior Leader, and FFA, where he exhibited many projects in Shop and Crop and ended his career as the Darke County Junior Fair King and Star Agri-businessman for the State of Ohio and the Big E Conference.

When asked why he wanted to be a part of the Fair Board Matt replied, “I have been blessed with being born into the greatest agriculture county in Ohio. I have also gained much knowledge from the 4-H, the FFA, and the agriculture community in this county. With the support of my family, I want to do my part and help give back to this county and my community by volunteering my time to The Great Darke County Fair Board. I also want to thank everyone for their consideration and support.”

In order to vote for the Senior Fairboard Directors you must have a Voting Membership ticket (yellow). Remember as long as you live in Darke County and are over the age of 18 you can trade in a non-voting ticket for a voting pass or purchase a new one.

  1. Matt would be a great addition to our fairboard. I've known him many years, and he is a good and honest man with a great sense of humor and a genuine concern for 4H kids and all the members of our community.
