The purpose of the Hardin County Agriculture Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor outstanding contributions to agriculture by Hardin County people. Annual awards will be made to men or women who have been instrumental to the success and excellence of agriculture, either as a farmer or in an agricultural related field. We desire to honor and give public recognition to those who have brought distinction to themselves, have made outstanding contributions to their professions, and whose community involvement has served as a stimulus to others. Selected individuals who have been instrumental to the success and excellence of agriculture will be honored at the Agriculture Hall of Fame Awards Banquet, scheduled for Tuesday, December 5, 2023.
