Amos and Kaci Nidiffer, the owners of Trosly Farm in Elk Park, are the 2020 North Carolina Small Farmers of the Year.

The Cooperative Extension at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University presented the award to the Nidiffers Sept. 30 during an online ceremony, and were presented with a plaque, monogrammed jackets and $1,500.

The Small Farmer of the Year Award is usually presented in March on the N.C. A&T campus during Small Farms Week. This year, the award presentation was delayed due to COVID-19.

Trosly Farm grows greenhouse products, such as lettuces, greens and tomatoes; and livestock, such as hogs and pullets.

The Nidiffers also have a dairy cow and some pet goats for their three children.
