Farm Bureau District Meeting

Brad and I attended the Farm Bureau district meeting a few weeks ago. We had a yummy supper that included a carrot casserole. I have never really loved cooked carrots, and I honestly got a spoonful of the stuff thinking it was sweet potatoes – although I made a comment about never having had sweet potatoes with powdered sugar on top! I ended up finding out that it was carrots and have vowed to cook a carrot casserole someday!

The meeting part was good too. One of the neatest things was that out of the five county awards given, our county won four – Outstanding Young Farmer Committee, Women’s Committee, Secretary, and Legislative Committee.

Brad and I will be more involved in the district meeting next year because we are going to be the Young Farmer Chairs for the district for the next two years! We’ve participated in a number of Young Farmer activities over the past year, and I’m looking forward to being even more involved and meeting more new friends!

Congrats! We're involved in our Farmers Federation too. Instead of Farm Bureau, Alabama has the Alabama Farmers Federation, which is part of Farm Bureau. I'm the Young Farmers County Secretary.

You are going to love being on the YF and R committee. It was truly the best 2 years spent promoting ag and learning much about politics, policy, and AG in general. Have a great time!
