Riverside Farmer Wins Special Award

  print email

In recognition of more than 50 years of service to the ag community, Riverside County, Calif., farmer Dan Hollingsworth has earned the highest award bestowed by the California Farm Bureau Federation – the CFBF Distinguished Service Award.

A nursery owner and former dairy farmer, Hollingsworth has held numerous leadership positions within Farm Bureau, including president of the Riverside County Farm Bureau and as a member of the California Farm Bureau Board of Directors.

“What makes Dan so special is his commitment to farming and ranching here in California, plus his dedication to improving food supplies internationally,” CFBF president Paul Wenger says. “Dan has helped pave the way for U.S. agricultural leaders to visit and learn from farmers in places as diverse as China and Russia.”

Industry Involvement A Priority

Hollingsworth earned a dairy science degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. He has been recognized by many entities for outstanding service. He is a founding member and a current director on the Upper Santa Margarita Irri-gated Lands Group, providing information for ag landowners about best management practices.
