The Mike Shaw family has been named "Outstanding Farm Family of the Year" for Lafayette County. They will represent the county at the North Florida Fair in Tallahassee this Fall.
The Shaw Family was presented a nice plaque at the recent Lafayette County Farm Bureau Annual meeting held in Mayo. Rod Land, County President, presented the award and County Extension Agent Chris Vann read a short biography of the Shaw family involvement in agriculture.
The Shaws will attend a great banquet prior to the North Florida Fair and will also receive free tickets to the Fair.
"Agriculture is still the most important industry in rural counties like Lafayette, and Farm Bureau is proud to honor a family that every farmer in Lafayette and surrounding counties know personally," said Land.
