Celebrating Nash Huber

Nash Huber recently was honored with the American Farmland Trusts’ 2008 Steward of the Land award. The award recognizes Huber for his leadership role in protecting agricultural land, local food and the environment. Huber is the first Washington state farmer to receive the award, which honors the memory of Peggy McGrath Rockefeller, an avid farmer and conservationist who helped found American Farmland Trust.

Huber was given the award at a luncheon Wednesday, June 4, surrounded by about 150 of his closest friends and supporters. The menu featured Huber’s homegrown fare. Standing ovations and congratulations highlighted the afternoon celebration.
