Lee County Young Farmers Named Commodity Division Winners


Garrett and Robin Dixon of Lee County were named Peanut Division winners in the Alabama Farmers Federation 2023 Outstanding Young Farm Family (OYFF) contest during the organization’s Young Farmers Conference in Birmingham Feb. 25.

The statewide contest is for farmers ages 18 to 35 who receive most of their income from production agriculture. It measures success based on farm growth and diversification, Farm Bureau involvement and community leadership.

The Dixons raise row crops and cattle in Salem. As division winners, they will serve a one-year, ex-officio term on the Federation’s State Peanut Committee, where they’ll see the policy development process firsthand and help guide research, promotion and education work.From left are Federation State Young Farmers Committee Chair and Elmore County farmer Jonathan Edgar, the Dixons and federation Executive Director Paul Pinyan.
