2017 Young Farmer of the Year
Mercer County Farm Bureau's 2017 Young Farmer of the Year is Jordan Goodpaster. We recognize a young farmer each year because the average age of the American farmer is 58. We want to support our farmers because they are the ones that feed and clothe us. One farmer feeds about 155 people each year. Amazing! Congrats Jordan!!!
