MacFarlane honored as Farmer of Year

When Marilyn Macfarlane set out to establish a horse farm four decades ago, she blazed a trail unheard of at that time.

“Forty years ago, as the first single female to receive a loan from the local bank for farmland, she had the courage and talent to build an eight-stall cow barn into a state of the art equestrian facility,” Ferenc Vegh Jr. told nearly 400 people who attended the Shelbyville Kiwanis Club’s 61st annual banquet at Floral Hall.
