Full List of Top Producer of the Year Award Winners

April 26, 2010
By: Sara Schafer, Farm Journal Media Business and Crops Editor
 
 


With its Top Producer of the Year awards program, the magazine recognizes business excellence among the nation's agricultural producers. Winners are selected because they have demonstrated superior capabilities in agricultural marketing, finance, family business relationships, production or environmental stewardship. Many have overcome severe obstacles or challenges that would have discouraged other farmers. We are not looking for best single-year performance, but for an operator's long-term achievement and for individuals whose careers can provide inspiration for others in production agriculture.
