Local NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) officials said everything worked well to make this tour a success, including the weather.
NRCS member Susan Kyler said that purpose of the farm tour is to “educate the community about agriculture and it’s commitment to the continued production of the safest, most affordable and most abundant food supply in the world.”
The Farm Tour was revived five years ago after a roughly 10-year absence. It had been a staple of county life in the summer prior to that.
This year, the first stop was at the farm of Scott Jolly, which focused on the raising of cattle. The second stop at Cundiff Farms focused on irrigation and canola.
