Agricultural Hall of Fame nominations sought


Courtney Krieger

COLUMBUS, OH. – Nominations are currently being sought for the 2021 Fulton County Agricultural Hall of Fame Award. Because the agricultural industry plays an important part in the lifestyle and economy of Fulton County the Agricultural Hall of Fame was organized in 1983.  Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is the highest recognition awarded to members of the agricultural community who have made outstanding contributions to Fulton County agriculture and the county as a whole.  

Qualifying recipients of the award would have made their major contribution in Ohio and have/had a long tenure in their field or endeavor, preferably 25 years or more and would include one or both:  

1) A farmer or breeder who has made a major contribution to the land and the product hereof

2) Someone who has worked in an agriculture-related activity or agri-business.  

The 2021 Agricultural Hall of Fame awards will be presented at a dinner August 23, 2021 at Ruihley Park Pavilion in Archbold, Ohio. We will also be recognizing 2020 inductees at this in person event due to last year's ceremony being cancelled. Past recipients of the Agriculture Hall of Fame award will also be invited.  

Individuals or organizations who would like to make nominations can obtain application forms at www.fulton.osu.edu or at the Fulton County OSU Extension Office, 8770 State Route 108, Suite A, Wauseon, 419-337-9210.  Completed nominations should be mailed to the Extension Office or emailed to krieger.117@osu.edu by July 10.

There will be a display of all Fulton County Agricultural Hall of Fame members at the Fulton County Fair with pictures and biographies of all past and current recipients.
