The Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Western Palm Beach County Farm Bureau, will host the annual Farm City luncheon, presented by Baptist Health South Florida, on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at the South Florida Fairgrounds.
The Farm City luncheon was created to highlight the important economic contribution of the agricultural industry in Palm Beach County. It will feature speakers: Stephen Basore of Bengard Farms, Paul Allen of R.C. Hatton Farms and Alleigh Reitz of Everglades Farm Equipment. A special recognition will take place to honor State Rep. Rick Roth (R-District 85) for being named 2020-21 Florida Farmer of the Year by the Florida Farm Bureau Federation.
This favorite annual event always provides an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the agricultural community and the positive impact they have on Palm Beach County. In addition, all attendees receive a complimentary box of locally grown vegetables courtesy of local farmers and Farm City.
The event would not be possible without the support of partners Baptist Health South Florida, Discover the Palm Beaches, the Eastern Palm Beach County Farm Bureau, Florida Crystals, Florida Public Utilities, FNGLA Palm Beach, Florida Power & Light, Keiser University, the Palm Beach County Farm Bureau, the South Florida Fair, U.S. Sugar, Wellington Regional Medical Center, Wells Fargo and the Western Palm Beach County Farm Bureau.
