On occasion friends and colleagues ask me why I’m involved with Farm Bureau. I’ll often share how I love the leadership and education opportunities. This last weekend I graduated from the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Leadership Institute, a yearlong personal and professional development program. It wasn’t until this week, following that graduation, I was able to reflect on what this organization truly means to me. It’s about friendships and a shared love for agriculture. Here’s why I’m a part of Farm Bureau:
If you’re already a member, I’d encourage you to think about what this organization means to you and where it can help you in the future. If you’re not a part of Farm Bureau, think about joining. Just like other organizations, you can pick and choose what and how much you want to do. It’s what you make of it. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d be glad to share more information about membership or simply answer questions.
I own and manage Cylon Rolling Acres in northwestern Wisconsin. On my farm I raise Boer - Kiko meat goats and dairy buck kids all on pasture. We also harvest maple sap. Read more here.
Keep up Day-to-Day with the farm:
Cylon (pronounced Si-lon) is the name of our township in St. Croix County, Wisconsin. Sorry fans, our farm is not named after the robots of Battlestar Galactica.
