Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Matt Brechwald

Isaac Evans, a Salem Hills High School FFA member and the recipient of an FFA grant, was recently featured on the agricultural podcast “Off-Farm Income.”

Matt Brechwald, the host of the show, said, “I think it is great when agriculture and the hunting community can work together. Isaac’s business of raising pheasants to give more people the opportunity to enjoy these hunts is a great example of this. We profile FFA students with entrepreneurial SAE’s or supervised agricultural experiences from all 50 states and his business was a perfect fit.”

Isaac’s achievements in the FFA and in his own business have now been exposed to thousands of listeners all across the United States as well as internationally. Brechwald said, “We have lots of agricultural listeners, with Utah being our fifth-largest audience. We receive thousands of listens from Canada, Australia and England as well, so Isaac’s story will be heard of worldwide.”

Brechwald has conducted hundreds of interviews with FFA students from all over the United States and was particularly impressed with what Isaac and the Salem Hills FFA chapter have done. “When I spoke with Isaac, it was clear that he had done a lot of planning for this project, and it was very well-thought-out,” Brechwald said.

If you would like to hear the interview with Isaac, it is episode #283 of the “Off-Farm Income” podcast. You can listen to the show on iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud or you can listen on the podcast website at www.offincome.com.

Matt Brechwald is an agricultural broadcaster who creates custom podcasts for and consults with companies that have a story to tell. He is the host of “Off-Farm Income,”, a three-times-weekly podcast that focuses on agriculture and entrepreneurship; the host of the D&B Supply Show, a weekly podcast and radio show airing in Eastern Oregon and Southwest Idaho; and a contributor to “FFA Today,” a weekly national radio program that airs on Rural Radio, SiriusXM Channel 147.
