The Alamance County Agri-Business Committee recently hosted the 39th Annual Agriculture Appreciation Banquet on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, at Occasions Restaurant in Burlington. The event started many years ago as a way to show gratitude to the hard-working farm families in Alamance County.

The 2024 Service to Agriculture Award was presented to John and Olga Elder by Bill Kleiner, Director of the Alamance County Cooperative Extension. The 2024 Conservation Farm Family Award was presented to Willie and Emily Holliday and Family by Brad Moore, Administrator of the Alamance County Soil and Water Conservation District, and by Roy Stanley, Chairman of Alamance County Soil and Water Conservation Board.

The Agriculture Appreciation Banquet would not be possible without the Alamance County Agri-Business Committee Members and the sponsors that contribute and support the committee’s plan of work each year, which also includes the Farm-to-Table event held in the fall for 800+ 4th graders.
