In year’s past, 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.
Due to the cornavirus pandemic, we are suspending our typical awards and celebrating our 10 year anniversary of the Adopt a Farmer program!
COVID-19 UPDATE: We will be hosting a virtual event this year! Our silent auction will begin Monday, November 16th and conclude before our live auction on Friday, November 20th
Schedule to Follow
This year, engage with us through Watch Party sponsorship! Instead of attending in person, we’ll deliver the bounty of Oregon to you before the event. You will have Oregon-grown wine and charcuterie fixings, plus other goodies to make your own party at home!
Each year Oregon Aglink gives two awards out, based on nominations from the public which are then voted on by our Board of Directors.
Ag Connection Award – This honor is for an organization, business entity, or individual who has done an outstanding job connecting the public with agriculture.
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.
