Custer County Farm Bureau officially opened the doors of its new satellite office in Weatherford July 29.

Now located at 1405 N. Washington across the street from Weatherford High School, the new office will replace the old location at 510 E. Main.

After breaking ground on the site September 10, 2019, the Custer County Farm Bureau board members and insurance agents worked closely to create a space to better serve their members and the community. The new larger office and parking lot features a designated board meeting room and covered outdoor area that can be used several ways, Custer County Farm Bureau President Lawrence Sawatzky said.

“We always have had an office here in Weatherford, but with this new building, we hope to better serve our community through a variety of ways including defensive driving courses and hosting county member events,” Sawatzky said. “In the past, we have done great things, but I want to keep pushing us to do better for our members.”

Custer County Farm Bureau serves its members and the community by advocating for farmers and ranchers throughout the county and state, hosting safety and educational programs, and providing insurance products and services.
