Harlan County Farm Bureau Wins Kentucky Farm Bureau County Activities of Excellence Award

 

Harlan County Farm Bureau (HCFB) won the American Farm Bureau County Activities of Excellence award, and so we automatically won the Kentucky Farm Bureau County Activities of Excellence Award. At the Kentucky Farm Bureau Annual Convention in Louisville, Harlan County Farm Bureau showcased their new innovative program called Forestry Days. From the tradeshow booth, Don Miniard, president of Harlan County Farm Bureau and other board members informed hundreds of people about the success of Forestry Days. At the booth, they also had a drawing to give away a handmade walnut basket crafted by Nobe Baker from Bledsoe, KY. Cecilia Oaks won the basket. At Forestry Days, all Harlan County 5th grade students experienced a field day on a 80 year old Tree Farm and learned the basics of forestry including tree ID, forest ecology and timber stand improvement.
