2020 Chamber Ag Day
The annual Chamber Ag Day Luncheon was scheduled for Friday, March 20, 2020 in partnership with the Darke Soil and Water Conservation District and the Ohio Department of Agriculture. With the Covid-19 pandemic and the guidelines set forth by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, the Darke County Chamber was unable to hold its annual Chamber Ag Day Luncheon.
Chamber Ag Day has been in existence for more than 60 years to honor those in agriculture and to foster partnerships among our farmers, agri-businesses and traditional businesses in Darke County. Agriculture is the number one business in Darke County and the most current Census of Agriculture Cash Receipts annual total is $516,193,000, giving Darke County a ranking of second in agriculture in Ohio.
Chamber Ag Day is organized by the Darke County Chamber Agriculture Committee.
