In recognition of his agricultural leadership, Rich was named Professional Farm Manager of the Year for 2007 by the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA). He also received the designation of Accredited Farm Manager through the ASFMRA in 1986, and has been an active member of the Illinois Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers since 1981.
