The Utah Farm Bureau Family expresses its condolences to the family of Garrick Hall, who recently passed away unexpectedly. Garrick was a Utah Farm Bureau Regional Manager for nine years, as well as serving additionally as a policy analyst for the past several years. Most recently, Garrick was working with the Utah Department of Agriculture & Food to promote farmland preservation.
Prior to his working with Utah Farm Bureau, Garrick was devoted to Utah’s agriculture industry. He served as the chair of the Utah Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee while working on his dairy in Cache County. As part of the Young Farmer & Rancher program, Garrick and his wife, Holly, won the Utah Farm Bureau Achievement Award, the top award for young farmers and ranchers. Garrick also won the Discussion Meet, where he helped hone his ability to advocate for agriculture and explain difficult issues.
Garrick also participated in the American Farm Bureau’s Partners in Advocacy Leadership (PAL) program and the McCloy Fellowship in Germany.
A devoted family man, Garrick was a tireless advocate for Utah agriculture and gave his all for his wife and six children. The consummate advocate for agriculture and extremely hard worker, Garrick fought for the industry he loved as well as for his alma mater, Utah State University, where he was instrumental in helping secure funding for a forthcoming veterinary school. Garrick was especially critical during the recent years with ‘Miracle Projects’ for the Miracle of Agriculture Foundation, where Garrick involved his family in the effort.
Garrick and his great spirit will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Holly, and their family. The Utah Farm Bureau has set up an account through its Miracle of Agriculture Foundation where those interested in supporting the Hall family may do so through a donation.
