Farming Heritage Award


The Farming Heritage Award honors the history of agriculture as represented on the West Virginia State Seal and recognizes families who have worked in agriculture for generations.
The Farming Heritage Award is presented to a family that strives to maintain its rural lifestyle by contributing to the community, acting as role models, dedicating time to efficient agricultural production and to maintaining the upkeep of their farm.

This award is made possible through a partnership with the West Virginia Farm Bureau.

Winning families are treated to an awards ceremony during the State Fair on Governor’s Day, a luncheon, overnight accommodations, complimentary admission, preferred parking and a Natural Stone Sign award with the family’s name that may be displayed indoors or outdoors. A photo and brief biography of the winners are displayed in the Gus R. Douglass Annex during the State Fair.

A special Thank You to our Gold Level Scholarship donors!
