If you're between the ages of 18 and 35 and want to make a difference, Michigan Farm Bureau's Young Farmer program is for you! Our purpose is to inform, educate, lead and serve the state's young leaders in agriculture.
Young Farmer members are men and women who are directly or indirectly involved with Michigan's agriculture, food and natural resources sectors.
Whether you're interested in production agriculture, promotion and education or legislative issues, the Young Farmer program offers an opportunity to grow and apply your leadership skills in roles that are challenging and beneficial to you and the industry.
Michigan Farm Bureau makes a point to recognize up-and-coming leaders in the agricultural community.
Our Young Farmer Award program honors deserving individuals in the following categories and rewards winners with top-notch prizes from generous and loyal sponsors.

The Discussion Meet is one of the most popular Young Farmer contests.
It's an opportunity to flex your public speaking, problem-solving and conversational muscles while discussing some of the most pressing issues facing agriculture.
And we can't forget the prestige and prizes that come with winning!
