Hutchinson, Kansas (August 21, 2017) – The Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce Agri-Business Committee is seeking nominations for the 2017 Farm Focus Family Award and the 2017 Agri-Business of the Year Award.
Each year in November during National Farm City Week, The Chamber celebrates agri-business and the impact it has on Reno County during the Chamber Membership Breakfast. This year’s Farm Focus Family breakfast will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
In addition to inviting all Reno County Farmers to attend the breakfast at no charge, two local farm families will be recognized. This award began in 1985 and since then, 96 families in Reno County have been recognized for their contributions to Reno County Agriculture.
This year, the Chamber’s Agri-Business Committee will also be adding a new award, the Reno County Agri-Business of the Year. This award is intended to honor agri-businesses in Reno County, which is defined as the businesses collectively associated with the production, and distribution of agricultural products.
