BATAVIA   Craig Yunker who manages one of Genesee County’s largest crop farms, has been named to the board of directors of the Genesee County Economic Development Center.

Yunker was named to the seven-member board by the Genesee County Legislature, and will succeed a fellow agri-businessman, James L. Vincent of Byron.

Yunker, an Elba resident, farms 6,000 acres in the county and also owns Batavia Turf Farms, a sod-growing operation.

The former industrial development agency has developed a half-dozen business parks in the towns of Batavia, Bergen, LeRoy and Pembroke. Its latest is an agri-business park said to be the first in the state to cater to food processing companies.
