In 1968 the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame was established by the Atlantic Livestock Council as a means of honouring individuals in Atlantic Canada for their contribution to the development of the livestock industry in the regions. Over the years, the scope of the organization has expanded and now includes all segments of the agricultural community throughout Atlantic Canada.
Each year, based on nominations received from farm and rural organizations, one person from each of the four Atlantic Provinces is honoured at an induction ceremony and reception held during the month of October. Portraits of the Hall inductees and their citations are placed on public display in the vestibule of the C.A. Douglas Boardroom in Cumming Hall at the Faculty of Agriculture in Truro NS.
The Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame operates as a result of the support given by agricultural organizations, public agencies, corporations and private individuals. The three levels of membership and a membership form are available. Please support the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame by becoming a member or making a donation. Receipts that may be used for income tax purposes will be issued.
