Commodity groups also will award their respective producers of the year, and the Watauga Soil and Water District will present the Farm Family of the Year award. The Boone Chamber of Commerce will present the “Tuckwiller Award” to recognize achievements in Community Development in memory of the late Lake Ernest Tuckwiller, past Watauga County Farm Agent.

Door prizes of baskets full of locally produced foods and goods will be drawn from ticket stubs, and an original painting by acclaimed local artist Richard Tumbleston will be given away as the final prize.
