Sarah Jones was awarded the Women's Gold Star at the recent Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting!
Sarah, a director of the Allen County Farm Bureau and chair of the Women's Committee was recognized f...or her implementation of a number of programs reaching benefiting Allen County.
Most recently, Sarah was responsible for obtaining a grant from Allen County Farm Bureau allowing all our 4th graders to attend the Kentucky Partners for health and Safety Day Camp at WKU last fall. She also prepares the county's annual Outstanding Youth and Youth Variety contents, promotes Food Check-Out.
A number of her programs help teach local students about farms and farmers. One favorite with the students is the Pizza Demo. The students enjoy delicious pizza and learn that EVERYTHING on a pizza comes from someone's farm! Sarah often arranges for local Farm Bureau directors to visit Primary Center classrooms bringing snacks and books about agriculture.
"We are very thankful for Sarah," commented Al Pedigo, president of the local Farm Bureau organization, "she is not only important to the success of the farm she and her husband Bart operate, but is a full-time Mom to Ty and does lots of heavy lifting for us and for the state organization."
Sarah also serves on the state organization's Swine Advisory committee. She and her husband Bart and their son Ty own and operate Red Hills Farm near Scottsville, KY.
