Polk County Farm Bureau held their annual meeting Monday, September 25. During the meeting, Extension Agent Carla Vaught presented a slide show featuring the Polk County & District Farm Family of the Year, the Luke and Deedee Alston family. State Senator Larry Teague and State Representative John Maddox honored the Alston family with a citation from the State Congress. As District winners, the Alston’s farm, Holly Springs Homestead and Irons Fork Cattle Company are finalist to be named as the State Farm Family of the Year to be announced in December. Agency Manager Tony Hooper and Vaught both agreed that the Alston’s are very strong contenders because of the diversity of their operation.
