NORWICH – The Chenango County Farm Bureau brought home the silver and the gold from Albany earlier this month, and they anticipate receiving their eleventh national award in San Antonio this January.
These aren’t the first awards the local organization has received.
“We’ve won more national awards than any other farm bureau in the country,” said CCFB President Bradd Vickers.
In recognition of their continued commitment to local agriculture, the county level organization was awarded a total of six Silver Key Awards at the New York Farm Bureau Annual Meeting, held Dec. 9 to 11 in Albany.
The awards are given annually to the county organizations which have “exhibited excellence” in a number of categories. A total of 43 were presented this year.
The CCFB was recognized in the areas of local policy implementation, state and national policy implementation, information and public relations, agricultural education and promotion, and leadership development and membership.
