[r51] Rep. Zent congratulates local family on long-standing farm

Entry Description
STATEHOUSE- State Representative Denny Zent (R-Angola) congratulates the Burger family from LaGrange 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.

F.B.I. Farms Inc., located in Howe, has been in operation since 1881. The Burger family received the Centennial award for over 100 years of ownership. 

“I am extremely proud of the Burger family for achieving this award,” said Rep. Zent. “Committing to the maintenance of a family farm for over 100 years is truly admirable.”

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.

“Agriculture has always been the foundation of Indiana’s economy,” said Rep. Zent. “The longevity of this farm is special because it symbolizes a family who has passed down their heritage and way of life over several generations.” 

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 />

Rep. Zent (R-Angola) represents most of LaGrange and Steuben Counties.
