The Beulah Mae Holcomb Mardis Farm received the centennial award for 100 years of ownership. The farm began in 1906 and is located in Franklin.
The Hoosier Homestead Award Program began in 1976 to acknowledge the contributions these families have made to Indiana agriculture. Over 5,000 farms have received the award in the past 30 years.
“The dedication of The Beulah Mae Holcomb Mardis Farm merits distinct recognition,” said Rep. Smith. “Farms like these inspire our entrepreneurial spirit and are essential to our Hoosier economy.”
Two award ceremonies are held each year – one at the Statehouse in February and one at the State Fair in August.
