Master Farmer Farm Family Nominations

Submitted by Daryl Buchholz

Kansas Master Farm Families for 2022 were honored at a banquet in Manhattan on March 24, 2023, with family, extension agents and friends attending together with alumni of the Master Farmer/Master Farm Homemaker classes of years past. This is a great recognition program for LOCAL farm and ranch families sponsored by K-State Research and Extension and Kansas Farmer Magazine, with additional support provided by Kansas Farm Bureau, Frontier Farm Credit/American AgCredit, and the Kansas State Fair Board.

I am sure you have many more successful farm/ranch families who are great local community leaders. Begin the process now to identify a family who should be recognized from your extension district or county as a member of the 2023 honorees! We are calling for nominations to be submitted by May 8, 2023. Should you not know who might be the family that deserves this recognition, ask any of the families who have been recognized. They know families who are more deserving than they were!

The simple nomination process and the on-line application can be found at https://tinyurl.com/Ksmff.

Don’t miss this chance to recognize and honor your local farm/ranch families who have that long record of being great farmers/ranchers, extension supporters, and a positive influence within your community and beyond. No better way to demonstrate the value of extension, and in many cases, 4-H leadership locally. Nominations are due May 8, 2023!
