Glenn and Amanda Dye of Stafford County were honored Wednesday by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation as the winners of its 2019 Young Farmers Achievement Award.


The award recognizes young farmers who are successful in agriculture and provide leadership on and off the farm. The Dyes raise corn and soybeans in Stafford and Appomattox counties and have served on the VFBF Young Farmers Committee. Glenn Dye also serves on the Stafford County Farm Bureau board of directors and has been active in leading efforts for farm equipment highway safety in Virginia.


“Agribusiness is America’s first industry, and the farmers spirit endures in Stafford County,” stated Gary Snellings, Stafford County Board Chairman, Hartwood District. “In a century when farmers must transform into scientists and entrepreneurs to compete, we congratulate Glenn and Amanda Dye for their achievement.” MORE>>
