Fayette County Farm Bureau Hosts Legislative Appreciation Dinner

Our annual Legislative Appreciation dinner was hosted at the Fasig Tipton this year. Dinner for the evening was provided by the renowned Ouita Michel. She has a true commitment to local and our farmers and we cannot thank her enough for leading the way and setting an example for other restaurants and Chefs to buy local. This dinner is hosted every year for current seated officials representing Fayette County. It is a great opportunity for us to build relationships with them so that when they have issues come up dealing with agriculture, they can call on a producer to get facts and answers first hand.

I discovered how to grow crops, care for animals, and to be a good steward of the land. It was a classroom like no other and my parents set an example that I carry with me daily.
