ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Officials in Maryland are accepting nominations for the Governor's Agricultural Hall of Fame.

The Maryland Department of Agriculture says nominations are due Sept. 9. Officials are looking to honor farm families who have dedicated their lives to farming. The families that are selected to be inducted into the hall of fame will be honored during the Taste of Maryland Agriculture on Feb. 5, 2015.

Any farm family that derives its income principally from farming is eligible to be inducted into the hall of fame, which was established in 1991.

The hall of fame currently includes 45 farm families from 23 counties.

Local nominating committees in each county select one nominee from the county and forward the selection to the governor's selection committee.
