Dawson County Farm Bureau Office Manager Tammy Wood was recognized for her work during the Georgia Farm Bureau 1st District annual meeting held Sept. 18 in Calhoun.


Wood coordinates DCFB’s agricultural advocacy efforts and serves as the primary point of contact in the organization’s interactions with the Dawson County community.


“She goes above and beyond her duties in her quest to be a voice in the community for Farm Bureau,” said DCFB President Wayne Bennett. “She works closely with county officials, organizations and our school system to see that Farm Bureau is a presence and supports all of these people.”  


Founded in 1937, Georgia Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm organization and has 158 county offices. Its volunteer members actively participate in local, state and national activities that promote agriculture awareness to their non-farming neighbors.


GFB offers its members a wide variety of benefits, including insurance, but enrollment in member benefits is optional and not a requirement for membership.
