Every farm community has one or more exemplary farmer-leaders. Pick one in your community to submit for the 2018 Mid-Atlantic Master Farmer award.
Individuals, farm couples or partners may be nominated. Farm family businesses don’t qualify, since this award recognizes outstanding individuals — not farms.
Nominate candidates from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Once a nomination is received, the nominee will be sent an application, which needs to be completed by January.
Send names, mailing address and contact phone number to: Master Farmer Program, 5227 Baltimore Pike, Littlestown, PA 17340. Or email [email protected]. Be sure the mailing address is current and complete.
The Master Farmer award is co-sponsored by American Agriculturist and Cooperative Extension in the above-mentioned states, with generous support from AgChoice Farm Credit, Mid-Atlantic Farm Credit and FS Growmark.
