Entry Description

STATEHOUSE – State Rep. Randy Truitt (R-West Lafayette) congratulates the Beutler, Albright, Nesbitt Farm of Tippecanoe County for receiving the Hoosier Homestead Award. The award was presented by Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann and Agriculture Director Gina Sheets at the Indiana State Fair today.

The Hoosier Homestead Award Program recognizes families with farms that have been owned by the same family for 100 years or more. Fifty-four Centennial awards were given for 100 years of ownership, 15 Sesquicentennial awards recognized 150 years and three Bicentennial awards for operating at least 200 years in the Hoosier state.

The Beutler, Albright, Nesbitt Farm, located in West Lafayette, Ind., began in 1892. They received the Centennial award for over 100 years of ownership. 

The program began in 1976 to acknowledge the contributions these families have made to Indiana agriculture. More than 5,000 farms have been recognized since the program was established.

“Remaining in operation for over a century shows a strong commitment to our state and feeding Hoosiers,” said Rep. Truitt. “This farm, like many other small businesses, has withstood the tests of time and is a pillar of our state’s agriculture industry. I wish this family, and all other Hoosier farmers, the best and for many more years of plentiful harvests.”

Two award ceremonies are held each year – one at the Statehouse in February and one at the State Fair in August.
