Consignment auction raises funds for Anne Arundel County Young Farmers
Farming for Our Heritage is printed on T-shirts proudly worn by young farmers of Anne Arundel County. Their love of the soil and its bounty is inherited from parents and grandparents.
For many, it’s a heritage as close as it is deep. “Many of the members are active on their own family farms,” says Mark Hopkins, one of about 20 Anne Arundel County Young Farmers ranging in age from 18 to 35. Most work in farming part-time, usually keeping a job while raising corn, barley, soybeans, wheat and hay.
