A pig breeder, mushroom grower, and goat farmer are among the finalists for Iowa Farm Bureau’s Grow Your Future award.
Iowa Farm Bureau farm business development manager Amanda Van Steenwyk says the goal of the Grow Your Future award is to showcase and encourage innovation and entrepreneurship on the farm.
“It’s a process where young farmers get to apply, and then throughout the course there’s some elimination rounds. And then the grand prize is $7,500.”
Previous winners include a cricket farmer and cover crop dealer.
