Carroll Chamber Says “Thank You” to Local Ag Industry with Golf Outing Appreciation Event

The Carroll Chamber of Commerce is hosting its annual Agri-Business Golf Outing on Friday, August 11, 2017, to recognize and honor the area’s 1,065 farms and the hardworking individuals and businesses behind the success of those farms.

“Agriculture is a cornerstone of our community and the Chamber Golf Outing is one opportunity to say thank you, not only to the farmers but also those in agri-business who support our local ag community,” explains Sarah Foley, Chamber program director.

According to the 2012 USDA Census of Agriculture, the market value of crops grown in Carroll County reaches $192.2 million. Meanwhile, the market value of Carroll County livestock tops $384.4 million. Of course a business this sizable doesn’t just happen.

Agriculturally related jobs in the county account for more than 3,683 jobs, with those individuals earning $235.2 million annually.

“We see agriculture every day, driving past a corn field or watching a feed truck roll through town,” adds Foley. “This is our event to recognize and celebrate these amazing efforts.”

The event is sponsored by more than 40 area businesses and an expected 140 golfers are registered to play, with many more expected to come and partake in the post-golf steak dinner. Additional steak dinner tickets can be purchased in advance by calling the Chamber office at (712) 792-4383.
