Adam Belflower recently joined the Georgia Farm Bureau Public Policy Department as a governmental affairs specialist and now lives in Macon.

Belflower is a graduate of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. While at UGA, he studied Agribusiness and researched food policy under Dr. Travis Smith in the Department of Agriculture and Applied Economics.

“We are excited to have Adam join the Farm Bureau family. His strong academic background and agricultural ties make him a valuable addition to our advocacy efforts at the capitol and our members,” GFB President Tom McCall said.

He was an active member of the GFB Young Farmers and Ranchers UGA Chapter competing in the Discussion Meet for two years, attending the GFB YF&R Conference, and attending the 2022 AFBF Convention.

Belflower has worked as an intern for Corteva Agriscience on the Southeast Seed Team and the Georgia Department of Agriculture as a licensing intern. He spent three summers as a row crop scout for a local agriculture consultant in Middle Georgia and worked on various farms with strawberries, row crops, and livestock.

Belflower grew up in Cochran and graduated from Bleckley County High School. In middle and high school, he was involved in Georgia 4-H with his project work focusing on strawberry production.
