Kim Farber, Drummond, OK, Inducted Into Oklahoma Conservation Hall of FameWed, 26 Feb 2020 14:46:52 CST
Kim Farber, former president of the Oklahoma Assoc. of Conservation Districts and veteran farmer from northwest Oklahoma, was recently inducted into the Oklahoma Conservation Hall of Fame as a District Director from Garfield County Conservation District.
Sam Knipp visited with Farber after the induction ceremony. "I'm a very strong believer in conservation," Farber said.
She noted one of the most significant changes is the move to no-till farming. "I think it's great for the soil," Farber said.
She noted farmers have adapted to the many changes over the years and adopted new methods to meet the constantly changing challenges. "You've got to be a good steward of the land," Farber said.
Although no longer on the OACD board, she has shifted her focus to the Oklahoma Conservation Historical Society, a relatively new venture started three years ago by Tom Lucas, Woodward County, and Ben Pollard, Oklahoma County.
A lot of the younger generation may not know where we've been, Farber said. "We are trying to show the younger generation where we have come from and where their roots are," Farber said.
