Through a partnership with Kubota and Pinnacleview Equipment, the Young Farmer Achievement Award winner receives the tractor to use for 6 months or 250 hours.

John Fernald, part owner of Fernald Farm Dairy in Nottingham, who along with his wife, Heather, received the 2015 NH Farm Bureau Young Farmer Achievement Award, was handed the keys to his prize on April 12th.

Every year since 1992, through a partnership with Kubota Tractor Corporation and Pinnacleview Equipment of Walpole, the Young Farmer Achievement Award recipient has been given the use of a tractor through the Kubota Young Farmer Program. Kubota has a proud history of supporting Farm Bureau through its Young Farmer Award.

Larry Curran from Kubota and Mike Snide from Pinnacleview Equipment delivered the 135 horsepower M135GX tractor and congratulated John for the achievement.

John will use the tractor for crop work on the nearly 300 acres of fields the Fernalds either own or lease dotted across Nottingham and into surrounding towns. The farm has been in the family since 1824.

To be eligible for the Achievement Award, contestants must be between the ages of 18-35 and members in good standing with their county Farm Bureaus. They must be actively engaged in farming with a majority of their income coming from production agriculture.
