County Farm Bureau Wins Awards
SYRACUSE — The Chautauqua County Farm Bureau was presented with all five County Activity of Excellence awards at the New York Farm Bureau’s state annual meeting held recently in Syracuse.
The County Activity of Excellence awards are presented to county Farm Bureaus that have exhibited excellence in a variety of categories relating to effectiveness in agriculture promotion and outreach, leadership and county Farm Bureau management, legislative advocacy, and membership.
While at the state annual meeting, farmer members also took part in the grassroots process of laying the groundwork for the year ahead.
More than 150 delegates from across New York proposed, discussed and voted on resolutions that will guide the bureau’s public policy agenda for 2019.
