The upcoming celebration of National Farm-City Week kicked off this week with a luncheon in Washington DC.

At the event, the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture presented its inaugural “Book of the Year” award to a Georgia tree farmer, better known to rock and rollers for his career as keyboardist for the Rolling Stones. Chuck Leavell was honored for his children’s book titled “The Tree Farmer.”
