STATEHOUSE (March 28, 2016) — State Rep. Mike Braun (R-Jasper) congratulates the Klingle-Doty Farm in Martin County for their designation as a Hoosier Homestead award recipient for 100 years of family farm ownership. 

“Indiana agriculture supports nearly 190,000 jobs and contributes more than $44 billion to the Hoosier economy,” Braun said. “Their hard work and dedication in supporting the agriculture industry is greatly appreciated by our community. The Klingle-Doty Farm deserves this recognition.”

The Hoosier Homestead Award Program recognizes farms that have been owned and maintained by the same family for 100 years or more. The Klingle-Doty Farm has been in operation since 1888.

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.
