Denim & Diamonds

A Night to Remember

Every November, Oregon Aglink hosts Denim & Diamonds, an awards dinner and auction, which affords us the opportunity to raise funds for the Oregon Aglink Foundation, supporting programs like Adopt a Farmer.

Each year this event serves to recognize those who have gone above and beyond in advocating the importance of agriculture to the economic, environmental and social well-being of the state of Oregon. Award winners are voted on by the Oregon Aglink Board of Directors each spring.

This year’s event will take place at the Salem Convention Center on November 18, 2022. We can’t wait to see everyone in person – plus we’ll have an online portion available too!

Agriculturist of the Year – This award recognizes and honors an organization, business entity, or individual for an outstanding contribution to the agriculture industry as a whole.
