Kansas Farm Bureau recognizes a Montgomery County farm as farmers of the year.
Farm Bureau has named the Voelker family as the 2023 Kansas Farm Bureau Farm Family of the Year. Recipient Chuck Voelker says he and his wife, Julie, run a small cow-calf operation.
Voelker says his operation started in 1983 in his last semester at Kansas State. Voelker says being a recipient of this award and getting this recognition is a humbling experience. Voelker encourages those who are not Farm Bureau members to consider joining. He says the benefits of being a member far outweighs the $50 member fee.
