Let’s meet some fifth-generation farmers who are named National AFBF Runners-Up!
Tennessee’s Derek and Micayla Giffin were named national runners-up in the American Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Achievement Award contest.
As a fifth-generation farmer, Derek operates Giffin Farms alongside Micayla and also his father and cousin.
The family farm is a diversified row crop operation consisting of more than 1,000 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat, and occasionally other small grains to increase diversity and produce their cover crop seed.
The couple also raise cattle where they focus on producing high-quality calves for their custom beef enterprise.
