JCJDC's New Business Venture Award

Each year, the Jefferson County Job Development Corporation (JCJDC) recognizes a company established and located in Jefferson County that has been operating for at least two years, but not more than four years, and has shown that it is effectively implementing its business plan and experiencing growth. The winner of the award will be presented with a check for $1000.

We are so thrilled to have been one of four finalists for this award, and offer our most sincere congratulations to this year's winner, Fourth Coast Inc.!  Above is the video reel of the four finalists. Better Farm's clip starts at 3:02!
