FB HendersonLOUISVILLE, Ky. (12/1/17) — Henderson County Farm Bureau was honored as one of five winners in the 2017 Kentucky Farm Bureau County Activities of Excellence program. All five recipients of the award were recognized during today's general session of KFB’s annual meeting in Louisville.

The County Activities of Excellence competition was developed to identify and honor the outstanding, innovative programs or activities conducted at the county level that meet the overall goals of the organization, KFB announced. The program also encourages KFB members to share their ideas with others who may benefit or be able to replicate a successful program in their own county. 

Henderson County Farm Bureau was recognized for its fact-based plays about agriculture. These plays, written and presented by the county students, were performed in front of a live audience at the county fine arts center.

These plays, accurately portraying local agricultural operations and enterprises, were written and performed to parallel famous children's classic stories such as "Tractor Express", "Mary Croppins", "Harry Plopper and the Farmer's Egg" in addition to "Ben and the Beanstalk".

Kentucky Farm Bureau, with more than 478,000 member families statewide, is the state’s largest general farm organization. Approximately 2,000 members are attending KFB’s 98th annual meeting in Louisville this week to recognize this year’s individual and organizational achievements and adopt policy for 2018.
