Farmer tapped for bureau board
Hall Wesley

Wesley Hall of Cumming has been elected to a two-year term on the Georgia Farm Bureau’s board of directors.

Hall fills the seat formerly held by J. Louis Hunt of Walker County, who died in May after having served on the board since 1979.

Voting delegates from the 15 counties in Georgia Farm Bureau’s First District elected Hall during the organization’s 2011 annual convention earlier this month on Jekyll Island.

In addition to Forsyth, the district includes Cherokee, Dawson, Gilmer, Pickens and 10 other counties.

Hall, 35, and his wife, Dawn, operate a custom farm business that specializes in hay baling and hay sales, chicken litter for fertilizer sales, and Johnsongrass removal.

The Halls are members of the Forsyth County Farm Bureau and Beaver Ruin Baptist Church. They have two children.

Founded in 1937, Georgia Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm organization, with 158 county offices.
