Darrell, Jay, Thomas and Carla will be tapped to share stories and experiences on a national stage to help shift conversations about food production and set the record straight about the way we feed our nation.
Applications were received from dedicated farmers and ranchers from across the nation, eight of whom were selected as finalists. Consumers, farmers and ranchers were asked to vote online for whom they believed best represented those across the country who work to bring food to the table. These votes were factored into the final decision to determine the Faces of Farming & Ranching. In addition to the public vote, a panel of judges interviewed and evaluated the finalists to help determine the winners of Faces of Farming & Ranching.
Winners will share their stories and experiences about how food is grown and raised in the U.S. on a national stage through media interviews, consumer-facing public appearances and events. This is the second time USFRA has sought farmers and ranchers to speak on behalf of the industry in this capacity.
