For the fourth consecutive year, Napa County Farm Bureau was honored as “County of the Year” in its membership category in recognition of an outstanding program of work at the grassroots level, said a news release.

California Farm Bureau Federation President Paul Wenger presented the award to Napa County Farm Bureau President Dana Estensen and Executive Director Sandy Elles during the awards banquet at the recent federation annual meeting in Pasadena. More than 1,000 Farm Bureau members and supporters attended, the release said.

“The County of the Year award is a tribute to our board of directors, volunteers and staff who work on a daily basis to promote and protect Napa County agriculture,” Estensen said. “We are humbled by the honor and grateful for the support of our community.”

Judges scored the counties in five categories: policy implementation, leadership development, ag education/promotion, member services and public relations.

Napa also won the President’s Program of the Year award in three of these five categories.

The farm bureau is a voluntary, nonprofit, non-governmental organization whose goal is to ensure the proper political, economic, environmental and social climate for the continuation of agriculture.
