In a story heard first on 1110 KBND; a well known local businessman and farmer is being inducted in the Oregon Farm Bureau Hall of Fame. To qualify for the prestigious honor a person needs to give at least 35 years of service to the Oregon Farm Bureau. Spokesperson Anne Marie Moss says Keith Cyrus has served as the Deschutes County Farm Bureau President and has given a lot of service to the local community as well as helping other farmers. And it all started many years ago: “So in 1959 Keith made a down payment on a farm with money he'd saved from his 4-H animals, and began farming on his own. Over the years he's worked hard with his wife Connie build his farm up to approximately 900 acres today.”  Cyrus was given the Hall of Fame Award last week in Pendleton at the Farm Bureau's Annual Convention. He marks just the 20th person to be inducted into the OFB Hall of Fame.
