GRAND RAPIDS — The Mason County Farm Bureau received state-wide recognition Tuesday when the organization won the Michigan Farm Bureau Champion of Excellence Award for advocacy. The award was presented to Mason County Farm Bureau President Seth Earl during the Michigan Farm Bureau awards banquet at DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids.

The award is a result of MCFB’s involvement in downtown Ludington’s Friday Night Live.

“Agriculture is one of Mason County’s top industries and the second biggest industry in Michigan,” Earl said. “Despite that, we as a society have never been as disconnected from the farm as we are today. We believe it is our county organization’s mission to promote farming and teach the public about what we do. Receiving this award is a great honor and reflective of the hard work that every farmer in the county Farm Bureau performs to teach people about this great industry.”

The Michigan Farm Bureau is the largest farm advocacy organization in the state and is currently holding its annual 3-day meeting in Grand Rapids. During that meeting, the organization adopts its legislative policies and organizational procedures for the next year.
