Entry Description

STATEHOUSE - State Representative Greg Beumer (R-Modoc) congratulates the Gordon family of Jay County and the Mote family of Randolph County for receiving the Hoosier Homestead Award. The awards were presented by Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann in the Farm Bureau Building at the Indiana State Fair.

The Hoosier Homestead Award Program recognizes farming families that have owned and operated the same farm for 100 years or more. Centennial awards were given for 100 years of ownership, while sesquicentennial and bicentennial awards were given for 150 and 200 years of ownership respectively.

The Gordon Farm has been in operation since 1868. The family received the centennial award for over 100 years of ownership. The Mote Farm also received the centennial award and has been in operation since 1913.

“Indiana would not be known for its rich agricultural heritage without the tireless efforts of our state’s farming families,” said Rep. Beumer. “I am proud to have the Gordon and Mote families call District 33 home, and I am pleased to see them rewarded for their years of hard work. I wish them both many more years of success.”

In 1976, the program was first established to acknowledge Indiana’s farming families that have made contributions to the economy, culture and the state’s overall advancement. Since the program’s inception, roughly 5,000 farms have been recognized for their dedication to Hoosier agriculture. 

Each year, two award ceremonies are held; one at the Statehouse in February and the other at the State Fair in August. For more information on the Hoosier Homestead Award Program or to nominate a family for the award, visit www.in.gov/isda/2337.
