Two legendary farmers will be added to Norfolk's Agricultural Hall of Fame.
Norfolk's heritage & culture division announcing that Ron Judd of Simcoe along with the late Dave MacLaren will be inducted into the hall at the end of the month.
MacLaren, who grew up in St. Williams, was a long-time journalist for the Canadian Tobacco Grower and the Delhi News Record and eventually became Canada's leading tobacco writer.
In 1928, the MacLaren farm was one of the first to grow flue-cured tobacco.
Ron Judd was, among many other things, a lifelong dairy farmer at his Meadow Lynn Farms in Simcoe.
Judd was also a major supporter of many agricultural organizations including 4-H, Norfolk Soil and Crop Improvement Association, Norfolk Federation of Agriculture and many others.
He served as President of the Brant-Norfolk Jersey Club for many years and in 2011 was honoured with a Jersey Canada Lifetime Membership.
Both men will be added to the Hall on April 30th.
