Coffee County Farm Bureau (CCFB) was recognized for its outstanding member programs and agricultural advocacy activities at the 85th Annual Georgia Farm Bureau (GFB) Convention held Dec. 4-6 on Jekyll Island. Derek Pridgen is the CCFB president. Carla Palmer is the CCFB office manager.
CCFB received the GFB Rewarding Excellence in Ag Program (REAP) Harvester Award in the organization’s large membership division. GFB’s REAP award honors county Farm Bureaus for the organization/membership, advocacy, leadership development, education and outreach activities they did between Sept. 1, 2021, and Aug. 31. The REAP Awards are divided into three tiers – Harvester (1st), Planter (2nd) and Cultivator (3rd) with five tier winners in each of GFB’s three membership categories – small, medium and large.
Said GFB President Tom McCall: “It’s a pleasure to recognize Coffee County for the work they have done to promote agriculture in its community this past year.”
As a REAP Harvester Award winner, CCFB President Derek Pridgen received an embroidered Farm Bureau jacket and CCFB Office Manager Carla Palmer received a three-day, two-night trip to her choice from several destinations.
