Door County Farm Bureau works to keep young people in agriculture

The Door County Farm Bureau is helping ensure your kids get acquainted with agriculture in various ways. Over the past year, the organization helped bring the tractor safety course for kids between the ages of 12 and 16, sponsored the essay contest and other activities as a part of “Ag in the Classroom,” donated agriculture-related books to the Southern Door Library, and provided in the Door County Fair and Sevastopol FFA Dairy Breakfast. Claire Olson from the Door County Farm Bureau says it is important for them as an organization to connect the dots for kids as to where their food comes from.

The Door County Farm Bureau also uses its Young and Farmer Agriculturist program to keep young adults connected to the industry. Last month, Door County YFA member Rachel Harmann won the state Discussion Meet contest. Harmann, who serves as the Door County Farm Bureau’s vice president and local affairs chair, will represent Wisconsin in the national meet this weekend in Puerto Rico. The Door County Farm Bureau will host its YFA Cornhole Tournament and Fundraiser on January 21st beginning at 10:45 a.m. You can read more about the event by clicking this link.
