The Farm Bureaus of Pulaski-Alexander and Massac counties welcome Alexis Burnett, who took the place as manager on April 15.

Burnett comes from a row crop farm in Metropolis. Her family raises corn, soybeans and wheat. Aside from helping on the family farm and her newest role with the Farm Bureau, she makes handmade soy candles and melts.

Burnett graduated in November 2020 from Murray State University with her Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture with a specialty in Agronomy. During her time at Murray State, she served as a member of the Agriculture Leadership Council, Collegiate Farm Bureau and Women in STEM. In addition to being a member of these organizations, Burnett was very active in the sisterhood of Sigma Alpha Professional Agricultural Sorority, where she served on numerous committees and was on the executive board as the professional development chairperson.

Burnett looks forward to giving back to the community, as well as closing the gap from farm to fork with new ideas for promoting Ag Literacy within her counties. Burnett’s passion for agriculture is her driving force to succeed in this new position.
