The Main family received the award at the annual Great Lakes Fruit, Vegetable and Farm Market Expo banquet Dec. 6 in Grand Rapids.

The vegetable council named Rebecca Grumet, a professor in Michigan State University’s Department of Horticulture, as its Master Farmer Associate of 2023.

Grumet’s research focuses on fruit development and disease resistance in cucumber and melon crops.
