(Fresno Chamber of Commerce)

The Fresno Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Fresno County Farm Bureau, is proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Ag Awards.

Each award represents an integral aspect of Fresno’s ag industry community. Without these dedicated individuals and businesses, Fresno would not be the leader in agriculture that it is today.

Congratulations to the following recipients:

  • Moss Adams Agribusiness of the Year Award - Baloian Farms
  • Agriculturalist of the Year Award - Bill Smittcamp, President & CEO, Wawona Frozen Foods
  • AGvocate of the Year Award – Jose Carlos Ramirez, 2012 Olympian and former WBC and WBO Unified Super Lightweight Champion of the World.
  • Agricultural Employee of the Year - Emilio Leon Coronel, Superintendent, Indart Group and Indart Enterprises. 

The honorees will be awarded at the Ag Awards Celebration on November 10th at PR Farms in Clovis; an evening event that will feature a thoughtfully curated farm-to-table dinner showcasing the fresh ingredients that are the product of Fresno’s agricultural industry.
