Harlan County Farm Bureau Wins AFBF County Activities of Excellent Award.

 

Harlan County Farm Bureau (HCFB) was the only county in Kentucky to win the American Farm Bureau County Activities of Excellent (CAE) Award. Harlan County Farm Bureau’s new innovative program, Harlan County Forestry Days, helped them win the CAE Award. Don Miniard, president of HCFB, Bill Middleton, Board Member and Forestry Chair of HCFB, and Nathan Boggs, Secretary of HCFB, traveled to the American Farm Bureau Annual Convention in Phoenix, Arizona to set up an advertisement booth at the tradeshow and share about Harlan County Forestry Days with County Farm Bureaus from across the nation.
