Ocean Mist Farms is one of six organizations scheduled to receive awards from the Monterey County Business Council at a Feb. 4 ceremony in Monterey, Calif.

The council’s Economic Vitality awards will be given at an invitational dinner at The Clement Monterey.

“Ocean Mist Farms has been a world-renowned leader in agriculture for decades, placing Monterey County (and) Castroville on the international map as the leader in artichoke production, marketing and promotion,” Mary Ann Leffel, council president, said in a news release. “Having a recognized logo worldwide is invaluable to the promotion of agricultural production in our region.”

“We appreciate the recognition from the Monterey County Business Council and graciously accept this award along with our esteemed colleagues from the county,” Joe Pezzini, chief operating officer at Castroville, Calif.-based Ocean Mist, said in the release.
