The third annual Warren County Dairy Farmers Appreciation Dinner was held Feb. 24. Hosted by Taylor Carlson, Warren County Dairy Princess, she and her court served a ham dinner with the trimmings to the local dairy farmers and their families. Taylor thanked the farmers for their commitment to the dairy industry and providing us all with a safe product to consume.
Carlson also talked about what the court did for promotions this year. Rachel Enos, Dairy Maid, read a toast written by Leah Curtis, Warren County Dairy maid: "F is for food that our farmers put on our plate, A is for agriculture that helps our country grow, R is for respect that farmers give to the land, M is for the miracles performed everyday, E is for the energy that farmers invest in their busy day, R is for remembrance of our past farmers who have gotten us to where we are today, S is for serenity of a farmer's daily work. To the farmers of PA to the Farmers of our great nation we toast you."
The girls recognized Judy Little for having the longest running dairy farm in attendance that day. The family farm has been in operation since 1965.
