STATEHOUSE (March 29, 2016) — State Rep. Steve Davisson (R-Salem) congratulates four local farm families for their designation as Hoosier Homestead award recipients.

“Farm families have always been a part of Indiana’s rich history,” Davisson said. “Recognizing the achievements of these families is important as they continue to play a vital role in our economy.”

The Hoosier Homestead Award Program recognizes farms that have been owned and maintained by the same family for 100 years or more.

The following list includes the family farms that received Hoosier Homestead Awards:

  • The Roy and Denise Harmon Farm, located in Harrison County, has been in operation since 1900 and received the centennial award;
  • The Farlow-Trimble-Haworth Farm, located in Orange County, has been in operation since 1811 and received bicentennial and sesquicentennial awards;
  • The Jack C. Morgan Farm, located in Washington County, has been in operation since 1835 and received the sesquicentennial award; and
  • The Prall Farm, located in Clark County, has been in operation since 1895 and received the centennial award.

Two awards ceremonies are held each year, in the spring and summer, to commemorate the achievements of farmers across the state. For more information on the Hoosier Homestead Award Program, visit www.in.gov/isda/2337.htm.
