Annual Meeting Returns After Yearlong Hiatus

This week, more than 500 farmers and agricultural stakeholders gathered at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar in San Diego for the Western Growers 2021 Annual Meeting.

The four-day event was filled with educational featured sessions, exciting networking events, riveting keynote addresses and more. Below are a few of this year’s highlights:

  • Albert P. Keck II, President of Hadley Date Gardens, Inc., was named the 2022 Chairman of the Board.
  • Carol Chandler, Partner of Chandler Farms, received the Award of Honor for her extensive contributions to the ag community.
  • Ryan Talley, Partner at Talley Farms, was recognized for his two exemplary years of service as the Western Growers Chairman of the Board.
  • 3Bar Biologics walked away from Western Growers/S2G Ventures’ AgSharks® Competition with a $250,000 equity investment offer to take its microbe technology from development to market.

All event images are now posted on Western Growers’ Facebook page and can be accessed here.
