Farmer of the Year Looking to Honor Outstanding Farmers
Washington—The American Farm Bureau Federation and the Farmers’ Almanac are searching for outstanding farmers and ranchers from all over the country to share stories of how they actively contribute to the agricultural community, embrace and explore innovations and technologies, and are true leaders and inspirations in their respective farming fields.
Nominees who have figured out how to keep their centuries-old, family-run farms alive and thriving, as well as newcomers who may have just started out in farming or ranching, are sought.
Judges from AFBF as well as the Farmers’ Almanac will review all of the entries and select three winners who best exemplify outstanding farming practices, farming tradition, and are worthy of the title of “Farmers’ Almanac Farmers Of The Year.” Winners will be offered reimbursement for a one-year membership to the Farm Bureau in their county of residence, a lifetime subscription to the Farmers’ Almanac, and have their farm and story featured in the pages of the 2018 Farmers’ Almanac.
All nominations must be received by Jan. 31, and can only be submitted online at http://FarmersAlmanac.com/FarmerOfTheYear.
