There have been two constants at Knoll Crest Farm since James Bennett’s father started the Red House, Va., cattle operation in 1929.

The first is that it has remained a family operation through the generations. The second is that the Bennetts have been leaders in the Virginia agricultural community.

On March 16, Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences recognized the Bennett family for its ongoing contributions to both the state and the university and inducted them into the Hall of Fame.

“We thank the Bennetts for helping this college continue to grow, expand, and be a leader in the agricultural community,” said Dean Alan Grant.
