Georgia Farm Bureau honored Morgan County’s Rachel and Jason Kinsaul for their service on the GFB Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Committee during the organization’s annual convention on Jekyll Island.
Rachel is an agriculture teacher and FFA advisor at Morgan County High School, where she teaches courses in agricultural mechanics, forestry, horticulture and animal science. Jason is an agricultural lender with Rabo AgriFinance, helping farmers in four Southeastern states with financing to begin, improve or expand their farms.
On the committee, the Kinsauls represented the GFB 4th District, which includes Farm Bureaus in Barrow, Clarke, Columbia, Glascock, Greene, Hancock, Lincoln, McDuffie, Morgan, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Putnam, Richmond, Taliaferro, Walton, Warren and Wilkes counties.
“Rachel and Jason have been outstanding ambassadors for Georgia Farm Bureau as a part of our Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee. We greatly appreciate their time and effort,” said GFB President Tom McCall.
“The Young Farmers & Ranchers program is an important part of Farm Bureau’s work to continue as the voice of Georgia Farmers, and we’re proud to help them develop leadership qualities that will help them as they grow in their role with GFB and with other organizations.”

As a membership-driven, nongovernmental organization, GFB serves as the voice of Georgia farmers and rural Georgia by advocating for them on legislative issues and promoting Georgia commodities. Its volunteer members also actively participate in activities that promote agriculture awareness.
GFB membership is open to the public and offers a wide variety of benefits, including insurance and discounts for health services, travel and family entertainment. Enrollment in any of the member benefits is optional and not a requirement for membership.
