Sussex County Technical High School has honored Perona Farms in Andover as its 2020 Business Partner of the Year.

The award is given annually to a county vocational technical school business partner for outstanding contributions to career and technical education.

Perona Farms, a wedding venue is owned and operated by the Avondoglio Family, has been Sussex County landmark for over century.
