We want to honor their hard work. Thank you to all who participated and congratulations to the winners.”
From March 1-23, 2021, farmer-growers in the Western as well as the Eastern and Southern U.S. were invited to visit ThankARetailer.adama.com to vote for their favorite regional ag retailer. The top-two vote getting ag retail businesses in each of the three regions won either a $3,000 or a $2,000 donation, respectively, for the charity of their choice.
Raising the stakes even further, each of the first- and second-place regional winners moved onto the national competition which ran from March 29-April 30. Growers again had a chance to vote for their favorite ag retailer and community at large. At the national level, the first-place ag retailer won a $15,000 donation to a local nonprofit, and the second-place winner received $5,000 for their local charity of choice.
