Over 18,000 people are expected to attend the "Luke Bryan Farm Tour" concert at Mulberry Orchard in Shelby County on Thursday.

County officials said they have been preparing for the crowd for over a year.

"This is the biggest event that's ever come to Shelby County," Shelby County Judge Executive Dan Ison said. "Can we handle this crowd? Yes, we can. Safety is primary concern for me as judge, and our people will have a safe environment to enjoy a great concert."

Ison said his sheriff's department is getting help from other agencies in surrounding counties, especially for traffic.

"During the exit, we're asking that people take the direction of the traffic officers," Capt. Kyle Tipton with the Shelby County Sheriff's Department. "We have two to three different exit strategies that will help get people out to their residents, whether they're trying to get to Interstate 71 through Henry County, or they're trying to get to our 64 and Shelby County."

Now that the plan is in place, both Tipton and Ison said they are as excited as everyone else around the county that the day is finally here.

"It's kind of like Christmas morning," Tipton said. "The anticipation, the hype, it's just-- it's it's wild!"

"Well, I know he's very hot," Ison said, laughing. "My wife, the first thing she said to me was, can I meet him? So it's exciting."

The concert is being held on a local farm, Mulberry Orchard. Amanda Gajdzik and her husband are the owners of the farm.

"We started the orchard in 2009," Gajdzik said. "We've got about 8,000 fruit trees. So we raise apples and peaches, all of our own vegetables and melons, and then, of course, have all the fall fun."

Gajdzik said they applied to host the tour over a year ago when Bryan's team was looking for a spot between Louisville, Lexington and Cincinnati.

"Luke Bryan's team has done so many of these over the last 13 years. They've got it down to a pretty good science at this point," Gajdzik said.

While she said she is excited to host all of the fans of Bryan, she hopes they'll come back to Mulberry Orchard to support the business in the future.

"The point of [the farm tour] is to help highlight agriculture and what it means to America," Gadjzik said. "It gets thousands of people out to the farm, they see the food growing. Then they hopefully think a little bit more about it and talk a little bit more about it."

The concert kicks off at 6 p.m. on Thursday evening, but parking opens at 2 p.m.

Shelby County Good Neighbors Farm Tour

The shelby county good neighbors farm tour is one event our family looks forward to each year we realize this event is not located in oldham county, but is so worth writing about and sharing all of the fun and learning that comes along with it..

shelby county farm tour

The 2022 tour date is on Saturday, September 17th and is 9am-4pm.  This year there are nine participating farms!

shelby county farm tour

  • Try to visit every farm!  Each stop has a unique experience, different from the last stop.  Pick up a farm tour map at any participating farm (on the day of the tour), LilyBud Farm Produce or the Shelbyville and Simpsonville Farmers Markets.
  • This is a self-guided tour, so go at your own pace, but start early.  We found that parking was tricky at some stops last year, so be patient.  If one farm is too busy, try another close by farm and then go back to the one you skipped.
  • You’re touring farms – wear play clothes and old shoes.  Bug spray and sunscreen are recommended also.
  • Restrooms might be hard to find – plan ahead with stops at fast food restaurants in town.  Porta-Potties are set up at some of the stops.  Bring your own hand sanitizer.
  • Pack snacks, but also plan a lunch break at one of the stops.  Bring cash and a cooler!
  • Thank the families that open up their farms! We found last year’s farmers and volunteers to be very kind and informative.

shelby county farm tour

Here is a copy of the map for Saturday. The participating farms are: Walnut Cliff Farms, H-Bar Angus Farm, James E. White Farms, Little Crooked Creek Safari, Twin J Farms, Horsesensing, Mulberry Orchard and Kesanca Farms.

photo FAD-1_zpsp2hw74oa.jpg

Churchill Downs is such a fun and exciting place to visit- and not just on the first Saturday in May! 

We've compiled a list of 5 Tips for Families Visiting Churchill Downs. 

1. Churchill Downs has Family Adventure Day s coming up! Not only will there be live horse racing, but lots of fun kid-friendly activities! There will be inflatables, a petting zoo, stick horse races, face painting, pony rides, and more! 2. Visit the Kentucky Derby Museum while visiting Churchill Downs! Check out these downloadable activities before heading to the museum! When you get there, make sure to look at the back of the Museum Map they hand out to all of their guests. There are fun and tricky trivia questions on the back. Find the answers throughout the museum, and then show it to the front desk for a prize! The museum itself is very kid-friendly with many interactive exhibits! Children under 5 are FREE to the museum!

3. Download the Churchill Downs app for your phone before you go! It helps you map out the nearest restrooms, concession stands, atms, and historical icons at the track. You can skip long lines for food and drinks with Express Pick-up or In-Seat Delivery (certain sections). You can even place bets directly from your phone (iOS). There's so much useful information on the app!

4.  Make sure to visit the Paddock area with the family. There you will get an up close look at the horses and jockeys as they are preparing for their upcoming race. Sometimes the jockeys will will even stop and talk to the kids!

Mulberry Orchard prepares for Luke Bryan concert

L OUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - From “Country Girl” to “Play it Again,” those are just some of the songs close to 15,000 fans are hoping to hear Luke Bryan sing in Shelby County on Thursday.

Mulberry Orchard will host Luke Bryan’s first of 6 shows of his 2023 Farm Tour.

Owner Amanda Gajdzik owns the farm with her husband. Gajdzik said that about a year ago, a friend on Bryan’s team reached out to her family to see if they would be open to applying to host a concert.

“It was one of those things that’s like a far hope that you would be able to host a star like that and be able to have this size of a concert on our farm,” Gajdzik said. “We are just super excited for the opportunity that it not only brings to Mulberry Orchard but also Shelby County and the Community as a whole. The idea of Luke Bryan hosting these events and making the farm tour such a big deal of what he does to highlight American agriculture, so just excited to get people out to the farm, to be able to see Mulberry Orchard and what we have to offer as well and hopefully come back and visit us this fall.”

Gajdzik said her farm was chosen because of its numerous side roads to help with traffic flow, flat land and capacity to handle large crowds. She said 80 acres of grass that will host the concert would normally be corn or soybeans, and that a portion of all the proceeds from tickets sold will go toward farming programs Bryan supports

Shelby County officials said they are anticipating around 5,000 cars and are anticipating traffic.

Below is a list of some prohibited items:

  • Outside food and drink
  • Open flames
  • Video camera’s

Gajdzik said the concert starts at 6 p.m., and tickets are close to selling out. Bryan’s team has told them they are expecting fans to come from Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati, Florida, and beyond.

TC Highlands Farm Tour

My family recently took a visit to tc highlands farm in pleasureville, kentucky to visit with some friendly highland cattle. .

shelby county farm tour

At TC Highlands Farm , we had a choice of half hour or hour sessions, and went with the hour visit. We decided we wanted to spend a little more time with the cattle, feed them treats, brush them, hear all about them, have plenty of time to take pictures with them, and make the hour drive out to the farm worth our visit.

shelby county farm tour

Visiting hours are mainly on the weekends for a limited number of sessions. Visiting sessions are also not held when the weather is too hot for the cows or too cold for the humans. There are no public bathrooms, food, or drink for visitors. They have a small table of TC Highlands merchandise to purchase, but other than that, you bring what you need, or stop on the way to the farm (there is a gas station just a few minutes away for bathroom needs).

shelby county farm tour

When we arrived at TC Highlands Farm, we were allowed to go into the fenced in area where they had three heifers and two calves. None were full grown yet – the heifers were about three years old and the calves were seven months old. All were female (both male and female Highland cattle grow horns). All will continue to get bigger. The calves were roaming around free most of our visit, but stuck near to the visitors for brushing and treats, while the heifers were tied up to the fence because they would prefer to wonder away from the guests and have visitors chasing around after them. All of the cattle enjoyed the brushing and treats. The farm provides combs for brushing and had a couple treat varieties for visitors.

TC Highlands Farm

The Highland cattle have no top teeth, so they take food more gently than any other animal I have ever fed. However, they are also a bit more slobbery taking food from you than any other animal I have ever fed – there is a towel and wet wipes if you need them. I recommend wearing clothes that can get messy when visiting TC Highlands Farm.

shelby county farm tour

Selfies encouraged

The TC Highlands Farm owners were friendly, the cows were friendly, we learned a lot about their breed, learned about their life on the farm, and had a great time brushing, feeding, and taking pictures with the cattle.

shelby county farm tour

It is important to the TC Highlands Farm owners to make sure people know not all Highland cattle are as well behaved as the ones we got to spend time with in the field. Out of all twenty of their Highland cattle, only these five were really appropriate for visitors. We really enjoyed our time at TC Highlands Farm and look forward to visiting again.

DELOACH FAMILY COMPETES FOR ALABAMA FARM OF DISTINCTION TITLE

John and Kate DeLoach of Vincent in Shelby County are one of six finalists vying for the title of Alabama Farm of Distinction and more than $20,000 in cash and prizes. The winner will be announced in conjunction with the Alabama Farm-City Awards Luncheon in Birmingham April 5. 

Their 1,325-acre DeLoach Farms includes 375 acres of cotton, 250 acres of soybeans, 200 acres of wheat and 150 acres of hay. The farm also boasts some of the highest yields in the area. But transforming the farm wasn’t easy for the DeLoaches.

 “I was 13 when my grandfather passed away,” John said. "Grandma talked about selling the farm, but I told her I’d come every day after school to help. At 16, when I graduated high school, I pretty much took over running the farm.”

 Twenty-six years later, their land management plan includes 20 acres of improved wetlands where John regulates water levels to provide food and habitat for waterfowl. Future plans include adding honeybees, a vineyard and agritourism with the help of son Jess.

 We feel it is an honor to have the opportunity to take care of this land for a lifetime,” John said. “And what a responsibility it is, to pass that on to future generations.”

 John is a member of the Agricultural Leaders For Alabama class and is active in the Alabama Farmers Federation, Alabama Cattlemen’s Association and Alabama Farmers Cooperative. He and Kate have been recognized at state and national levels for community service.

 Alabama Farm-City Committee Chairman Jeff Helms said he’s proud of the finalists for showcasing what it means to be a farmer in the 21st century.

 “Agriculture, forestry and related industries have a $70.4 billion annual economic impact on Alabama,” Helms said. “Our farmers provide food, fiber and fuel for a growing population, and we’re excited to honor six of our state’s top farmers for their dedication, innovation and perseverance.”

 Alabama’s Farm of Distinction winner receives a John Deere Gator courtesy of AgPro, TriGreen and SunSouth dealers; a 40-by-60' pole barn courtesy of Register Barns; a $1,000 gift certificate from Alabama Farmers Cooperative (AFC); an engraved farm sign from Alfa Insurance; and $2,500 as the state’s representative at the Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo Southeastern Farmer of the Year contest at the Sunbelt Ag Expo Oct. 16-18.

Each finalist receives a $250 gift certificate from AFC and an engraved plaque.

Judges Grace Ellis of the Alabama FFA Foundation, Dorman Grace of TriGreen and former Alabama Farmers Federation Commodity Director Jim Cravey visited the farms Feb. 21-22.

Shelby County Student Leader Learns Valuable Lessons During Youth Leadership Conference

Shelby County student Carolyn Hunter attended the Alabama Farmers Federation’s Youth Leadership Conference at the 4-H Center in Columbiana Oct. 2-3. The Shelby County Farmers Federation sponsored Hunter at the conference, where 46 ninth-10th grade students learned about social media etiquette, servant leadership, politics and agricultural misconceptions. Hunter is a 10th-grader at Chelsea High School.

Young Leaders Learn To Influence By Example, Trust Others Written by Marlee Moore, Alabama Farmers Federation As ninth- and 10th-graders traipse single-file up a hilly path, they’re not just enjoying a fall day at the 4-H Center in Columbiana. While blindfolded, they’re learning to take directions from, rely on and serve others. Those ideas were key tenets of the 2017 Youth Leadership Conference Oct. 2-3, sponsored by the Alabama Farmers Federation and county Federations. Forty-two students represented 25 counties. “When you have this many personalities and backgrounds gathered, it’s a perfect chance to learn how to work with others to bring about change,” said Jennifer Himburg, the Federation’s Young Farmers Division director. “I attended the Youth Leadership Conference in high school, and those friends have become my colleagues. Ten years down the road, I believe that’ll be true for these students and the network they form.” Students soaked up lessons about social media, teamwork and leading by example on Day 1. They learned to support, trust and communicate with each other through a ropes course, balance beam activity and canoeing. Marshall County’s Will Aycock said he plans to use tips from the conference in his role as the Alabama FFA North District reporter. “On social media, you have to make sure you’re being true and authentic,” said Aycock, a 10th-grader at Albertville High School. “You don’t have to talk down to people to be a leader. You can be the quiet person on the team and still get work done.” Former National FFA officer Barrett Keene encouraged students to focus on those they’re leading, as opposed to personal achievements. “Leadership is not merely a position through which you tell other people what do to,” said Keene, who works in leadership development for car manufacturer Tesla. “Our lives are of substantially more value when we are freely giving and loving to those around us.” Emma Martin of Geneva County said Keene’s session will make her a better SGA officer and leader at Slocomb High School. “Now I know how to be a better leader and that leadership is not being bossy,” the ninth-grader said. “A real leader always helps people.” Patriotism was on the program for Day 2, as reenactors from the American Village in Montevallo taught students to fold, raise and honor the U.S. flag. A political leadership session with Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall followed. To close the conference, students learned about Federation history and debunked agricultural misconceptions.

SHELBY COUNTY FARMERS VISIT CONGRESSMAN

Alabama Farmers Federation members were in Washington, D.C., March 7-10 to meet with Alabama’s U.S. Senators and Representatives where they discussed immigration and regulatory reform, biotechnology, the Endangered Species Act and the upcoming farm bill. Shelby County members had breakfast with Congressman Gary Palmer. From left are John and Kate Deloach of Vincent, Rep. Palmer, and Frances and Doug Schofield of Shelby.

Washington Legislative Conference Energizes, Excites Farmers

Morale was high as nearly 140 Alabama farmers returned from the nation’s capital March 7-10, buoyed by promises of regulatory reform and increased interest in agricultural issues.

The visit starkly contrasted trips during the previous administration, said Alabama Farmers Federation President Jimmy Parnell.

“Being in D.C. confirmed my belief that agriculture will experience real change under the Trump administration,” Parnell said. “We’ve seen this with his order to review the Waters of the U.S. rule and look forward to other improvements over the next few years.”

Speakers during the 2017 Washington Legislative Conference continually hit home the importance of immigration and regulatory reform, trade, biotechnology and the farm bill.

During briefings March 8, U.S. House Agriculture Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) encouraged farmers to share ideas about the upcoming farm bill.

“The beauty of doing farm bills every five years is you get to address the things you didn’t get right,” Conaway said. “We’re going to get this bill done, and we’re going to get it done on time.”

Farmers also heard from Special Assistant to the President and Director of White House Messaging Strategy Cliff Sims, who founded Yellowhammer News, and American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Public Policy Executive Director Dale Moore.

This was David Lee’s first trip to Washington, D.C., and the Lowndes County Farmers Federation president said visiting with Alabama’s delegation encouraged him.

“I’ve always heard to ‘call your senator,’ but never felt like I was able to communicate with leaders in our nation’s capital,” Lee said. “Now that I’ve met our leaders and many staffers, I feel they are more approachable to me and ready to hear my local needs.”

During the Congressional barbecue March 8, AFBF President Zippy Duvall advised farmers to establish relationships with Congressional leadership.

“You have to come and be seen,” said Duvall, a Georgia farmer. “Those who show up are the ones who make a difference. It’s so important for farmers to look their congressmen and senators in the eye and say, ‘This is important to me, my family and my community.’”

Attendees met with Alabama’s U.S. representatives during Congressional breakfasts Thursday, followed by meetings with U.S. Sens. Richard Shelby and Luther Strange, who serves on the Senate Agriculture Committee.

Supreme Court nominations, confirming Sonny Perdue as agriculture secretary and improving Alabama’s trade opportunities peppered the conversation.

Other events included visiting the U.S. Department of Agriculture and British Embassy, as well as a moonlight monuments tour.

SHELBY COUNTY YOUNG FARMERS SNAG STATE BEEF AWARD

Shelby County Young Farmers Josh and Amanda Slaughter won the Beef Division of the Outstanding Young Farm Family (OYFF) competition at the 2017 Young Farmers Conference. Nearly 400 Alabama young farmers met in Montgomery March 3-4 for farm tours, networking, the OYFF contest and legislative updates. The Slaughters live in Harpersville. From left are Alabama Farmers Federation President Jimmy Parnell, Amanda and Josh.

YOUNG FARMERS FOCUS ON FARM TOURS DURING ANNUAL CONFERENCE

From greenhouses to golf greens, row crops to research stations and cattle to kiwi, nearly 400 young farmers were in Montgomery March 3-4 learning lessons from lucrative farmers.

With representatives from 55 counties, the 2017 Young Farmers Conference was the largest in Alabama Farmers Federation recent history. The State Young Farmers Committee varied the conference format this year by replacing workshops with farm tours.

“While workshops can be very beneficial, there's nothing like visiting with other farmers on a beautiful March day and seeing how they make a living,” said State Young Farmers Committee Chairman Jerry Allen Newby of Limestone County. “I learned a lot during this conference that I can take back home to north Alabama, and I think other young farmers did, too.”

The conference began Friday evening with dinner and a performance by country and Southern rock band Trotline.

Saturday at breakfast, conference attendees received a legislative update and were encouraged to attend the Federation’s skeet shoot fundraiser in November. The shoot benefits the Alabama Farmers Agriculture Foundation (AFAF), which funds scholarships and Alabama Ag in the Classroom.

Participants then hit the road for farm tours across central Alabama.

Tour A included stops at Parnell Inc., a cattle and timber operation; Wright’s Nursery and Greenhouse; and Autauga Farming Co., a row crop and cattle farm.

A former member of the State Young Farmers Committee, Dallas County’s Heather Wright owns Wright’s Nursery and Greenhouse with her husband, Davey.

“I think the relationships we build and the things we learn during conferences are vital to our survival as a farm, business and family,” Wright said. “It's important we stay educated, keep gaining knowledge, participate in agriculture organizations and keep up with what's going on in the political world.”

Tour B headed to east Alabama and made stops at Hornsby Farms, a fruit and vegetable operation; Southeast Kiwi Farming Cooperative; and Auburn University’s E.V. Smith Research Station.

Jefferson County’s Will Dodd, 25, said he enjoyed meeting new friends and learning how the Federation can work with Alabama’s young farmers to continue a thriving agricultural tradition in the state.

“Given the labor intensive schedules of Alabama's farms, it's nice for Young Farmers to take a weekend and socialize with other young people in the profession,” said Dodd, who runs the nonprofit Heirloom Harvest, which helps Alabama produce farmers expand their markets. “The opportunity to tour farm operations and share experiences and advice on most effective practices only leads to a more productive agriculture economy for our state.

Tour C visited Talladega County’s Pursell Farms’ golf course and resort destination and Coosa County’s Pinthlocco Plantation, a quail preserve.

Attendees captured favorite tour moments by participating in an Instagram contest. Winners were Ali Grace Eiland of Pike County, Jordyn Upchurch of Clay County and Dodd.

Saturday evening, young farmers bid on Yeti coolers, jewelry, picnic tables, tools and more to raise $10,765 during a live auction benefiting the AFAF.

Preliminaries for the 2017 Outstanding Young Farm Family contest were held during the conference with finalists announced at the closing banquet. Ben and Jessica Johnson of Fyffe DeKalb County, Beth Hornsby of Auburn in Lee County and Eric and Carrly Lovvorn of Heflin in Cleburne County will compete later this year for more than $60,000 in prizes. The overall winner will be announced at the Federation’s Commodity Conference in Birmingham Aug. 5.

Commodity division winners who competed in the OYFF contest were Justin Hill of Eastaboga in Calhoun County, Bee & Honey; Josh and Amanda Slaughter of Harpersville in Shelby County, Beef; Elizabeth Hornsby of Auburn in Lee County, Horticulture; Jonathan and Sara Sanders of Roeton in Coffee County, Peanuts; Eric and Carrly Lovvorn of Heflin in Cleburne County, Poultry; Ben and Jessica Johnson of Fyffe in DeKalb County, Soybeans; and Barret Stephenson of Eufaula in Barbour County, Meat Goat & Sheep.

A man was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison on Monday for the murder of another man in 2020, according to the Nevada County District Attorney's Office.

On Oct. 8, 2020 , Michael Stine stabbed Shelby Comeaux II to death on a property in the southern portion of the county.

KCRA-TV

The district attorney's office called Stine's actions "senseless and cold-blooded," and presented the jury with cell phone audio that captured portions of the incident, along with eyewitness testimony.

"Shelby Comeaux II was tragically taken too soon," the district attorney's office said in a statement. "He will be deeply missed by friends, fellow military veterans and family, including his sister."

The district attorney's office said Comeaux's sister also gave a statement during the sentencing.
