Farm Bureau announces leadership program
DAVIDSONVILLE — The Maryland Farm Bureau announced a new leadership program, Growing Our Agriculture Leaders, aimed at recruiting and training future county Farm Bureau leaders.
Among the 2016 participants, Jay Douthit represents Kent County and Alan Eck represents Queen Anne’s County.
“Meeting and networking with other agriculture leaders across the state and nation is often cited as one factor that led current Farm Bureau leaders to their positions,” said Chuck Fry, president of Maryland Farm Bureau.
The group toured the Eastern Shore June 14 and 15, meeting with Farm Bureau leaders and exploring local poultry, produce, wine production, oyster farming and agricultural research.
