The Western North Carolina Agricultural Hall of Fame was established in 1991 by the Board of Directors of the Western North Carolina Community Development Association, currently known as WNC Communities.
The objectives of the Western North Carolina Agriculture Hall of Fame are:
- to identify and honor significant contributions to agriculture
- to recognize individuals who have been responsible for agricultural advancement
- to improve and promote agriculture as a result of the honorees work within the agriculture community in any phase of agriculture or agriculture-related endeavors
Selection of members for the Western North Carolina Agriculture Hall of Fame is conducted annually and the general public is invited to submit nominations for this honor. The nomination form is available in January. Contact our office by calling (828) 252-4783 to receive a hard copy in the mail, an electronic copy via email or download the current form here.
The induction ceremony is held in May at the Mountain Horticultural Crops Research and Extension Center in Mills River, North Carolina.
