Recognizing leaders in the organic farming community

Every year Marbleseed recognizes people and organizations within the regenerative and organic farming community that are contributing toward a robust, inspirational, and inclusive organic farming movement. Community outreach, nominations, and board deliberation guide the selection process and awards are presented at the annual Marbleseed Organic Farming Conference.

The Farmer of the Year award recognizes organic farmers who show a strong commitment to organic principles, use innovative practices on their farm, and share their experience to help other organic farmers succeed. The Changemakers award recognizes emerging leaders in the organic farming and food movement who creatively overcome systemic challenges in order to nurture a thriving agricultural future for all.
