Meet Hamilton County Farm Bureau Trustee Jessica Conrad
Jessica recently became a Farm Bureau member in June, but later decided to join the board of trustees. She felt the need to become a member because of her constant involvement within agriculture. Jessica grew up with horses and was involved in 4-H and FFA. These organizations allows her to pursue her interest in agriculture. Jessica also felt it would be good to join the board because a friend recommended it to her due to her interests in agriculture. During her short time as a member, her favorite aspect of Farm Bureau, so far, is the Washington, D.C. trip she attended in September.
Jessica is currently working at Green Acres and works with livestock. She studied agriculture business at Wilmington College and graduated in 2016. Throughout college, Jessica was active in participating in agricultural-related organizations, such as Wilmington Aggies and Collegiate 4-H. Overall, Jessica strives to maintain her involvement in agriculture because it is tremendously important to her.
