FARMER/VOLUNTEER AWARDS OF THE YEAR

The trustees of the Fair created a FARMER OF THE YEAR program in 1992. Now, during every year of the Fair, an individual is selected as the FARMER OF THE YEAR. The selection has been made by the Middlesex County Board of Agriculture and the award will be presented by the Fair Association during the Fair. A permanent plaque is mounted in the lobby of the Fair Office listing the names of those selected as the years go by.

The Farmer of the Year Award for 2018 has been granted to Shaun Hulchy. In addition, the Fair also names a VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR each year. The Volunteer of the Year Award for 2018 will be presented to Valerie Rabinskas .

The PRESENTATIONS will be held on Monday, August 6th, at 6:00 PM.
