Honoring Delmarva Farmers

Posted: Updated:
Every growing season on Delmarva, fields of corn and soybeans and wheat appear almost magically in the vast spaces between the region’s cities and towns.

Not surprising, since farmers make up less than 1 percent of the national population. That’s why, each growing season, we make a concerted effort to introduce some of these folks who contribute so much to the world and receive scant attention and more than a little abuse in return.
 
WBOC / FOX21 does not select the farmers. Each year we open nominations to the general public and six honorees are chosen by a panel of judges representing the agriculture community. This method has allowed us to profile both large operations and small family and niche farms,
