Coffee-table book will showcase hard work and passion of Kansas farmers and ranchers
Kansas Farm Bureau has partnered with nationally published photographer Scott Stebner to create a photo book celebrating Kansas farmers and ranchers. The hardcover, coffee-table book tentatively titled “Kansas Farmer” will showcase the hard work and pride of Kansas producers with beautiful photos and thoughtful commentary.
Stebner has spent the last year shooting photos and interviewing Kansas farmers for the book. Before the book is printed and available in December, the last farmer will be selected through a state-wide nomination process.
“I’ve so enjoyed learning from these farmers and hearing their heartfelt passion for farming and ranching,” Stebner says. “I thought it would be neat to ask the state of Kansas who else we should include. We’re providing an opportunity for people to nominate their favorite farmer or themselves.”
Nominations are accepted until Sept. 7, at kansaslivingmagazine.com/nominate-a-farmer.
Tell us in a 90-second video submission or photo with no more than 300 words why Scott should photograph your farmer: Is he great at what he does? Is she passionate about helping others? Has he overcome diversity? Sell us on why your farmer (or you) should be included in “Kansas Farmer.”
From the submissions, three nominees will be chosen as finalists. Public voting for the final selection will begin Sept. 12 and end Sept. 18.
