District 2 Young Farmers talk community, connection

Community is the word that may best describe the District 2 Discussion Meet and Policy Development night. Family, friends and neighbors gathered at Meckley’s Flavor Fruit Farm in Cement City to talk through topics affecting people in their communities.

Young Farmers discussed how they thought Michigan Farm Bureau could be helpful as their generation navigates uncertain times while still hoping to run a successful farming operation.

Each competitor brought their unique perspective to the table, contributing to a fruitful conversation that identified several potential growth opportunities for the organization.

“Some of the best discussions come from coming together and learning about each other’s situations,” said Chris Sanford, Jackson County Farm Bureau’s Young Farmer chair and a contestant at the Discussion Meet. “A big piece of the Farm Bureau connection is bringing the members together.”

It was easy to feel the connectedness amongst the members in the room that night. Best of luck to Chris Sanford, Kelsie Letts, and Daniel Ringkvist as they move on to the next round of Discussion Meet competition, the state-level preliminaries Nov. 11.
