In order for the 2012 inductees into the Arizona Farming & Ranching Hall of Fame to be included in the centennial book, which will be introduced at the 2012 Honorees Dinner, the deadline for nominations has been moved up one month to September 1, 2011.
Each year the Arizona Farming and Ranching Hall of Fame selects seven Honorees, five living and two posthumously. Inductees are selected for their contributions to the agricultural industry in Arizona in the fields of farming, ranching, Agri-business, education and science. Since the first honorees were selected in 2008 nominations have come in from across the State with honorees representing most of the agricultural areas from the Navajo Reservation to Douglas and from the White Mountains to Parker.
Honorees are chosen by an unbiased selection panel comprised of Arizonans with a diversity of backgrounds.
Nomination forms are available on the Arizona’s Farm & Ranch Experience, Heritage Center at Lakin Farm website, www.heritageatlakinfarm.org, or request a form by e-mailing email@example.com or calling (623) 695-9614.

Litchfield Road, Goodyear, Arizona 85338. To be considered forms must be received no later than September 1, 2011. The 2012 Honoree Dinner will be held at Corona Ranch on March 3, 2012.
