Still farming.
That was the theme of the Alabama Farmers Federation’s 99th annual meeting in Montgomery Dec. 6-7 where members of the state’s largest farm organization gathered to elect leaders, discuss policy and chart a path into the next century.
COVID-19 brought many changes to the meeting. Programs were shortened, members practiced social distancing and wore protective masks, however, Federation business continued in many ways as it has for nearly a century.
“I love what I do, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you, “ said Federation President Jimmy Parnell, who was reelected to his fifth two-year term. Parnell praised the work of farmers who persevered through a pandemic, trade wars and storms in 2020.
Among the members recognized at the annual meeting were Todd Williamson, Escambia County Farmers Federation incoming president; and Spencer Williamson, Escambia County, member of the State Young Farmers Committee.
