The Georgia Young Farmers program is an educational program designed for the systematic instruction of young farmers actively engaged in the business of farming. County Young Farmer Programs conduct educational seminars on everything from agricultural technology to legislative issues affecting agriculture.
Carroll County Young Farmers hosted the 2022 Summer Tour on June 17-18, 2022. This annual event is held in a Georgia county or combination of surrounding counties. The tour showcases agriculture in these counties and gives participants an overview of selected agribusiness and agricultural production sites.
NG Turf is proud to have been one of this year’s tour stops, along with Little Vine Vineyards and Winery and Sweet Shrub Farm. Many bright, young faces came out to get a glimpse of our sod farming process — from seed to mature sod to everything in between.
Outside of NG Turf’s daily operations, one of our goals is to cultivate a lifelong journey of learning. Jutt Howard, VP of Business Operations said, “It was such a pleasure to see a large group of eager farmer who will shape the future of farming in the years to come.”
