10/23/2013 at 11:20 a.m.


LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Agriculture Hall of Fame is seeking nominations from the public for its class of 2013. The nomination deadline is Nov. 15.

The Agriculture Hall of Fame recognizes Arkansans who are or have contributed significantly to the state’s largest industry, while spotlighting their contributions to the state’s economic development. Since its first class was selected in 1987, a total of 136 men and women have been inducted.

Cal McCastlain, chairman of the Arkansas Agriculture Hall of Fame, says anyone can nominate a person believed worthy for the honor.

“The men and women of agriculture have some truly compelling success stories,” McCastlain said. “The role of the Arkansas Agriculture Hall of Fame is to help tell their stories, to honor the worthy individuals who made a profound impact on Arkansas agriculture.”

The Farm Bureau Center in Little Rock houses the Agriculture Hall of Fame, which is sponsored by the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce and Arkansas Farm Bureau.

“It is a great honor to be able to recognize some of the finest farmers, ranchers, business people and scientists connected to agriculture,” McCastlain said. “The success of these individuals has not just been for them personally. It has impacted countless communities around our state, and touched people across the country and the world, in fact.”

Additional information and online nomination forms are available at www.arkansasaghalloffame.org. Forms can also be requested by calling MaLeta Stephens at 501-228-1470.

The induction ceremony for the next class will be March 7, 2014 in Little Rock. 


Arkansas Farm Bureau is a nonprofit, private advocacy organization of more than 200,000 families throughout the state working to improve farm and rural life.
