The Redman Farm in Marshall County recently received a Hoosier Homestead Centennial Award for being in operation since 1920, according to State Rep. Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) and State Sen. Stacey Donato (R-Logansport).
“Farming takes a lot of knowledge, hard work and dedication to one’s craft,” Jordan said. “There are many long days and nights for families on the farm, and it’s great to see their commitment being recognized with this award.”
The Redman Farm was among more than 100 awardees recently recognized at the Indiana State Fair for their commitment to Indiana agriculture.
“Agriculture is such an integral part of our state’s economy and communities,” Donato said. “The Redman Farm is great representation of our agricultural history in Indiana, and I am thrilled to see them receive this award as recognition of their hard work.”
Farms owned and maintained by the same family for 100 years or more can qualify for centennial, sesquicentennial or bicentennial Hoosier Homestead awards.
Each year, two awards ceremonies are held in the spring and summer commemorating the achievements of farm families across the state. Since its inception in 1976, more than 5,800 farms received the designation as Hoosier Homesteads.
