Farmer of the Year Presentation

One of the highlights of Farm Expo is presenting the Farmer of the Year Award to an outstanding individual from our region, identified as having a real “heart” for farming.  We are most appreciative that Kubota of Kingsport will again be sponsoring this special honor to a deserving member of our agricultural community.  Kubota will present a $500 check and Kubota jacket to the Farm Expo ’23 Farmer of the Year on Saturday, February 4.  The announcement will take place on the Farm Expo Kubota Main Stage.

Junior Farmer of the Year Presentation

The purpose of this program is to recognize exemplary efforts of our junior farmers in Northeast Tennessee-Southwest Virginia, specifically in the counties of Lee, Scott, Wise, Russell, and Washington in Virginia, and Hawkins, Sullivan, Washington, Carter, Unicoi, Johnson, and Greene in Tennessee. We are looking for those farmers who can be identified as having a real “heart” for farming.
