Distinguished Service to Agriculture Award


The Distinguished Service to Agriculture award is Michigan Farm Bureau's highest honor. Since 1956, we have presented this award to deserving individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the state's agricultural industry.

There are many other appropriate honors and awards, which may be presented by local groups for people who have made important contributions to agriculture at the county and community levels. In fact, your county is encouraged to present a county Farm Bureau Distinguished Service to Agriculture award at your county Farm Bureau annual meeting, in addition to making nominations for the statewide award.

DEADLINE: July 1, 2021
