[r35] Rep. Lutz congratulates local family on long-standing farm

Entry Description
STATEHOUSE- State Representative Jack Lutz (R-Anderson) congratulates the McWilliams family from Delaware 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 McWilliams Farm, located in Daleville, has been in operation since 1908. The family received the Centennial award for over 100 years of ownership. 

“The McWilliams family should take enormous pride in their accomplishment,” said Rep. Lutz. “Agriculture plays an integral role in the success of Indiana’s economy. Without families like these, farming in Indiana would not be what it is today.”

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.

“Our state owes a debt of gratitude to the McWilliams family and so many others for their tireless and all too often thankless efforts,” said Rep. Lutz. “Famers play a crucial role in feeding the world’s population.  Without their labors, there would be no food.” 

Each year, two award ceremonies are held; one at the Statehouse in February and the other held 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. />
