Our Valley, Our Future Event is a community event designed to celebrate the ingenuity, optimism and legacy of the hardworking farmers who grow the best crops in the world.

This year we are excited to announce the Our Valley Our Future Award Winners for 2020 on Wednesday, June 10th.

We will be sharing with you the award winners and their achievements through social media and on SPF’s website. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The Legacy Award
Recognizes that without the incredible dedication and commitment of generations of farmers who have come before us, this valley would not be the productive landscape we see today.

The Legacy award recognizes a farmer whose leadership has helped to advance, protect and promote the ag industry in our valley.

The Innovation Award
Farmers have a genius for finding out-of-the box solutions to problems. The Innovation Award recognizes a farmer making a significant contribution to the advancement of agriculture in our valley.

Some of the best ideas come from good old ingenuity and doing what’s smart.

The Future Achievement in Agriculture Award
Each year, a high school senior who shows promise in the field of agriculture is awarded a scholarship to continue their studies.
