Fresno, CA (November 6, 2020) – Yesterday, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and Moss Adams announced that Daniel Errotabere has been named as the 2020 Agriculturalist of the Year. This award is presented to an individual who exemplifies leadership and integrity in the Central Valley’s agricultural business community.
Mr. Errotabere, president of the Westlands Water District, is a third-generation farmer, whose family has grown food and fiber in the District since the late 1920’s.

Upon learning that Mr. Errotabere had received this award, Tom Birmingham, Westlands’ general manager, stated: “Dan Errotabere’s recognition as Agriculturalist of the year is well deserved. Dan has been a leader in the San Joaquin Valley agricultural industry for more than three decades.

On behalf of Westlands Water District, I want to congratulate Dan on this honor.”
In addition to serving on the District’s Board for 26 years, Mr. Errotabere also serves on the board of the Fresno Madera Farm Credit; Agricultural Foundation of California State University, Fresno; Family Farm Alliance; and Fresno County Farm Bureau.
