The Webers are eighth-generation farmers who operate a farmers market and retail store. They also sell hay, provide horse boarding and are expanding into aquaculture.

The AFBF Achievement Award is an opportunity for young farmers and ranchers to earn recognition for their achievements in farm growth and leadership qualities.

Andy Vance and Lindsay Hill of Logan County also were named Top 10 finalists in the national Excellence in Ag competition.

They own and operate Ohio’s oldest and most widely listened to agricultural radio network, ABN.

In addition, they travel frequently to state and national agriculture events, conventions and trade shows to provide farmer listeners with the most important information for their farm businesses.

The Excellence in Ag competition provides a platform to show and share knowledge of agricultural issues and to showcase involvement in Farm Bureau and the community.
