Outstanding Young Farm Family


Caleb and Leanne Ragland of Magnolia, Kentucky were honored as Kentucky Farm Bureau’s “2020 Outstanding Young Farm Family” at Kentucky Farm Bureau's 101st  Annual Meeting. 

Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation annually conducts an Outstanding Young Farm Family Contest.  County Farm Bureaus are encouraged to promote this activity among young farmers, recognizing them both in their chosen occupation and for leadership achievements. The ideal candidate(s) for this award is an individual, or couple, involved in production agriculture with a majority of their income subject to normal production risks associated with farming. 

Counties will not be limited in the number of applicants that they enter in this contest. If we receive more than one application from a county, the judges will choose a county winner. Each county OYFF winner will then be eligible for the district and state competition. Applicants for the Outstanding Young Farm Family contest may not apply for the KFB Farmer of the Year program in the same year.
