2019 Young Farmer Summer Outing


Somerset, KY July 26 27, 2019

The 2019 Kentucky Farm Bureau State Young Farmer Summer Outing will be held July 26-27, at the Center for Rural Development in Somerset, Kentucky. This event will provide a relaxed, fun atmosphere for young farm families to socialize, tour local ag-related sites, and gain a better understanding of the Farm Bureau organization.
The weekend will formally begin with the preliminary rounds of the 2019 Discussion Meet Contest Friday morning. Applications were mailed to the counties in March and are due to the state office no later than Friday, June 14th. Applications may be found online at kyfb.com/federation/young-farmers. Following the opening luncheon, participants are welcome to take part in an afternoon tour of Wolf Creek Dam. Dinner will be held at the SomerSplash Water Park where families will enjoy an exciting evening of fun and fellowship.
Saturday begins with the “Eggs and Issues” Breakfast featuring our annual young farmer policy development session. Following breakfast, participants will depart on one of five tours you chose online at the time you register. The Young Farmer Summer Outing will conclude Saturday evening with a dinner and activities at Bear Wallow Farm, Nancy, Kentucky.
