OFI 1295: Pumpkins, Fruit, Flowers, Agritourism And A National Proficiency Nomination | FFA SAE Edition | Jacob Hinton | LaRue County High School FFA
Our guest today was a National Proficiency Finalist in the category of Fruit Production in 2021. Jacob Hinton has a deep farming and FFA legacy in his family. However, his parents did not start the farm that he has been growing up on until 2006. They had a vision, and Jacob has been able to grow up working on that farm and helping that vision to come to fruition (pun intended).
Hinton's Orchard is where Jacob calls home. And on this farm he tends to flower gardens, fruit trees, a corn maze and a pumpkin patch. He also gives hay rides, and manages much of the agritoursim and apple sales that take place in the fall. Jacob is learning a ton at his own home. Everything from crop production, pest control and customer service are available for him to learn. And, this cornucopia of experience led him to Indianapolis last October as a National Proficiency Finalist.
