Hey Texas Table Top family! My name is Justin Green, and I would like to invite you along as I start my career at Texas Farm Bureau!
My agriculture background started the day I was born. My dad was a high school agricultural teacher for 17 years, which sparked my interest in agriculture. Throughout grade school, I was constantly involved in my local 4-H and FFA programs, ranging from livestock showing to Consumer Decision Making contests.
After grade school, I kept the family tradition alive and attended Tarleton State University. While at Tarleton, I pursued two degrees, both agriculturally based with an emphasis in communications. As a student, I held multiple titles under the office of Student Publications, starting as a staff writer and eventually working my way to a graduate assistant. During my time at Tarleton, I had the opportunity to go to London, England, on a study abroad trip, which is where my interest in traveling started.
Aside from traveling, I am a very interested in photography. I live through the eye of my camera. Baseball is a large passion of mine. I closely follow the Texas Rangers. Finally, I consider myself a foodie. I love to eat food and explore new foods. From the field to the stove top, I love to see how food is grown, and I especially love to see how it tastes.
My professional goal at Texas Farm Bureau is to add voice to the stories of Texas farmers and ranchers and agriculture to you, the consumer. My personal goal is to sharpen my craft of photography to better capture and complement those stories through images.
I could not be more excited to be a part of the Texas Farm Bureau family. It is nice to “meet” you!
Welcome to the team Justin. We are so excited you are joining us with a fresh perspective and taste buds. I can’t wait to see your photos and have you taste some of the great recipes I have coming up.
Well, thanks! I can’t wait to taste everything!
Congratulations on a great start to your new career. I know you will do well and add the spice of life to your articles. I too am a foodie! Our kids were also continually in 4-H and FFA to their great delight and education. My belief is that when you lose touch with the land and the great outdoors (Mother Nature, Earth, our Father’s world or whatever you choose to call it,) you lose touch with your humanity and who you were born to be in this world. Again, congratulations, and I look forward to reading your writing!
