Greensboro — Beaufort County Farm Bureau was named the winner of the 2017 County of Excellence Award, Division 2 on Dec.5. The county organization was judged North Carolina Farm Bureau’s most effective in its membership class in implementing programs, services and activities that build active county Farm Bureaus and fulfill the mission of the organization.

The award ceremony took place during NCFB’s 82nd annual meeting, Dec. 3-5, at the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center, Sheraton Greensboro Hotel at Four Seasons.

“This award is presented to the county that executed the best all-around effort for the year, and Beaufort County Farm Bureau represented the best of what Farm Bureau stands for and strives to achieve through its grassroots structure,” said Larry Wooten, president of NCFB.

County Farm Bureaus were evaluated on their development of public relations programs and enhanced communications with county leadership, legislative and policy development efforts, county board community service, leadership development and other ongoing non-profit activities.

Beaufort County participated in many activities throughout the year that promoted the mission of Farm Bureau. Some of those activities include sponsorship of various agricultural and educational activities within the county, attendance at several state conferences and events, and sponsorship of safety programs throughout the county.
