Bill and Carol Chandler, owners of Chandler Farms

Congratulations Bill and Carol Chandler for being awarded the 2020 Agriculturist of the Year during this year’s California State Fair Gala!  See the announcement here.

The California State Fair Gala is an elegant evening of special awards, gourmet food, wonderful auction items, entertainment, awards, and a blue ribbon salute to “Celebrating the Best in California.” The Agriculturalist of the Year, Agricultural Progress and Golden Bear Awards will be presented to deserving recipients in front of distinguished guests. It is also a night for making dreams come true as funds raised benefit the Friends of the California State Fair Scholarship Program.

The evening will begin with a Best of California Reception where you can mingle with our distinguished award winners and scholarship recipients and taste California State Fair award-winning wines, craft beers, olive oil and cheese. The main event will include a farm-to-fork dinner prepared by Spectra, an awards presentation, and an exhilarating live auction.
