2013 Alabama Farm of Distinction

Our farm was named the 2013 Alabama Farm of Distinction at the Alabama Farm-City Awards banquet on April 11! A panel of ag-experts chose the winner based on several categories - overall appearance, efficiency, environmental stewardship and leadership of the farm owners.

Thanks to everyone who made this possible for us! We are excited to enter the next phase of the competition where we will represent the state of Alabama in the Southeastern Farmer of the Year competition at the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, Ga. This will take place October 15-17.
