Kevin Taubert, Yvette Browne, Denise Toubert and Dale Browne of Sejah Farm took first place and grand champion honors for their fruits and vegetables at last year’s Agrifest.

Fruits, vegetables, crafts and culture take the stage this weekend at the 49th Annual Agriculture and Food Fair of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Starting Saturday and running through Monday at the Rudolph Shulterbrandt Agricultural Complex on St. Croix, the annual event showcases the agricultural community of the islands. With the theme “Agriculture: Trendy in 2020,” it is one of the largest agricultural expositions in the region.

This year, Agrifest 2020 will honor the late Lena Schulterbrandt, who died last year. Schulterbrandt was a longtime historian, cook and cultural bearer who was involved in the fair on an annual basis.
