John Elmore passed away this past Tuesday. Elmore, who served on the WG Board of Directors for 20 years, was a past recipient of the Western Growers Award of Honor. 

“John, a dear friend and mentor for nearly 50 years, was an inspiring visionary and innovator in the agricultural industry and will truly be missed,” said Tom Nassif, president & CEO of Western Growers. “His initiative to pioneer many of the farming methods we used today will forever impact the industry.”
