Each month we will highlight one of the board members.
Kenley Carpenter has been a member of the board since 2015. She is currently the Vice President of the board and serves as the Women's Committee Chair. Kenley also completed the KFB Leadership program in 2017. She is Self-employed at the Stauffer Ranch, working day to day along side her father, Kevin Stauffer. She is a third generation employee at the Holton Livestock Exchange working as a livestock handler; and is also a manager at Jhett's Pizza.
Kenley recently married Bryce Carpenter and they share their home with two dogs, Rocky and Bandit. They purchased a home that is part of a Century Farm. The land the house sits on has been in Kenley's family for over 100 years. They are in the process of renovating it and their current project is the kitchen. Once the kitchen is finished they hope to add a porch on the front of the house. Kenley loves being outside and working on the ranch with the cattle and spending as much time as possible enjoying the beautiful Kansas landscape.
Kenley would love to see a real connection between the farmers/producers and the consumers. There is a huge disconnect between these two groups because information (and misinformation) is so readily available and consumers have more questions than ever about where their food comes from.
Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas about agriculture with Kenley if you see her around the county.
