The Raber Farm, located in Bluffton, began operation in 1912. They received the centennial award for 100 years of ownership.
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.
“I want to congratulate the Raber family on their commitment to agriculture in our community,” said Rep. Jeff Espich (R-Uniondale). “Farms, like those honored today, are essential to Indiana’s economy.”
Two award ceremonies are held each year – one at the Statehouse in February and one at the State Fair in August.
