The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame honours individuals who have advanced Alberta’s agriculture industries, food industries and rural life. Albertans are encouraged to nominate an agricultural leader in their community.

Every two years, up to three individuals who have demonstrated exemplary leadership while making a provincewide impact on their industries are inducted.

“I am continually impressed by the dedication and pride demonstrated by our agricultural and agri-food leaders. The Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame gives community members the opportunity to recognize those leaders by nominating them for this prestigious award. I look forward to celebrating the 2024 inductees this fall.”

RJ Sigurdson, Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation

Since its inception in 1951, the Hall of Fame has recognized 141 men and women who have made significant contributions to the agriculture and food industry, and to the development and sustainability of rural life in Alberta. Past recipients have included prolific researchers, visionaries in beef cattle breeding, groundbreakers in zero tillage, innovators in agri-foods and passionate educators who have helped Albertans connect with their local food systems.

Nomination forms and a list of past inductees are available on Nominations close on May 3. The 2024 Agriculture Hall of Fame inductees will be celebrated at an induction ceremony later this year.
