Dade County Farm Bureau president Alice Pena was among 50 women honored by Business Leader Media as “Women Extraordinaire” for their commitment to excellence in their professional and personal lives.
The winners were honored during a luncheon in the Treetop Ballroom at Jungle Island in Miami on Monday, Dec. 12, 2011.
Alice Pena left a successful international banking and insurance career in 2002 to assume responsibility for PNS Farms after her mother’s passing. As an organic egg producer with a five-star rating (the only one in the state), Pena is devoted to her life in agriculture. Her passion for the industry is contagious.
Dade County Farm Bureau nominated Pena for this recognition, based on her business accomplishments and her ability to lead the organization.
Dade County Farm Bureau represents more than 3,200 members, over 700 of whom are involved actively in agribusiness and represent over 900 agricultural operations. Dade County farmers provide an economic impact of over $2.57 billion to the local and state economy.
