Growing Knowledge of Farm Safety

Through Active Engagement of Youth on Family Farms

In Loving Memory of Kaden

Our initiative attempts to capture the redeeming qualities of the farm boy we lost, by spreading the ever-important message of farm safety

Kaden was the epitome of Faith, Farming, and 4-H. His life was tragically cut short in a farming accident at the age of just 13. The Kaden Kares Farm Safety Initiative was organized by his family to honor his memory by bringing farm safety topics to the forefront of American agriculture. The sole mission of the Kaden Kares Foundation is to prevent farming accidents by engaging youth in farm safety through active participation with family members, neighbors, friends, and mentors. Kaden loved serving others, team activities, and competition.

Farming accidents involving children are happening far too often. As an agricultural community, we can do better. According to the National Ag Safety Database (NASD), the most successful educational efforts to improve farm safety involved farmers and their family members. This effort harnesses farm experience, yet also uses young people’s unique ability to learn with video technology. Finally, the power of social media will be utilized to build the audience and spread the message of farm safety.
