Jake and Tiffany Sache were recognized as the 2019 Florida Farm Bureau Achievement in Agriculture Award winners at the FFB Annual Meeting in Orlando on Oct. 30.
This high honor recognizes Young Farmers and Ranchers for their skill at farm production, development of their agricultural enterprise and service to Farm Bureau as well as the local community.
The Saches raise beef cattle, grow hay and operate a custom grass seed harvesting business on land in Levy County and surrounding counties.
Now a fourth generation farmer, Jake carries on his family’s tradition with his wife, Tiffany, also a fourth generation farmer and Chiefland native.
The Saches are high school sweethearts who married in 2010. Prior to being a stay-at-home mom to their three children, Emily (7), Sadie (5) and Kade (3), Tiffany worked as a medical assistant and phlebotomist in a pediatric office in Gainesville.
The couple serve as members of the Levy-Gilchrist County Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee. In 2011, they earned Florida Farm Bureau’s CARES Award for their superior accomplishments in natural resource conservation.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Jake serves on Florida Farm Bureau’s Fruit and Vegetable Advisory Committee as well as the Levy County Farm Bureau State Board of Directors, while Tiffany serves on the Women’s Committee.
“We are just so thankful to have the opportunity to network with other farmers our age and learn about their operations and ideas.”
The couple will compete for the National Achievement in Agriculture Competition at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s Annual Convention in January in Austin, TX.
