Durham Farm Connections
Celebrate Agriculture Gala
On October 27, Durham Farm Connections hosted their annual Celebrate Agriculture Gala and awarded individuals and families for their ongoing contributions to the agriculture community and to Durham Region.
On behalf of Durham Tourism, we'd like to congratulate and recognize two amazing individuals- who are long-time partners and have worked extremely close with Durham Tourism over the years for their awards- Carolyn Puterbough, Ontario Ministry of Food and Rural Affairs and Tracey Werry, Durham Farm Fresh Marketing Association.
The Puterbough Family were the proud recipients of the Farm Family Award. This award acknowledges an intergenerational farm family with a history of progressive achievements and community service. They were pleased to share this award with their entire family from the Altona Lea Farm.
Tracey Werry proudly accepted the The Spirit of Agriculture Award. This award celebrates the contributions of a voluntary group, organization, business or individual who exhibits the Spirit of Agriculture in supporting and championing the agriculture industry in Durham Region.
Congratulations to all award winners from the Celebrate Agriculture Gala. Thank you for all of your contributions to our agriculture community in Durham Region.
