Michigan Master Farmer nomination window closing


Two weeks remain to nominate farmers in Michigan for a master farmer award.

Jody Pollok Newsom, head of the Michigan Wheat Program, tells Brownfield winners are strong leaders on and off the farm.

“When it comes to farming and agriculture, you are a master, you understand how it works, you do great with your land, you really get the most that you can out of your crops,” she shares.  “But I also think it’s very important to have that leadership component.”

The submission deadline has been extended until October 15 and will judged on farm management, innovation, conservation, leadership, and community involvement.
