The latest round of the 2023 Agricultural Town of the Year voting is now open, with 49 towns on the shortlist.
13 local towns are among those up for the public vote, with Goolwa, Langhorne Creek, Mannum, McLaren Vale, Middleton, Mount Compass, Myponga, Oakbank, Paracombe, Strathalbyn, Victor Harbor, Willunga and Woodside all on the ballot.
The award looks to recognise towns whose agricultural practices are driving their town forward, and communities which show resilience within tough circumstances.
The State Government run initiative crowned Mypolonga as last year’s winner, and awarded them with a new sign at the town’s entrance at a celebration recently.
Regional Development Minister Claire Scriven says they hope the award acts as a showcase for the towns involved.
“It’s about attracting people to our towns, and making people aware of what’s available not only as a tourist, but as someone who might want to live there,” Ms Scriven said.
“There’s so many benefits that come from being involved in this,”
