Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman, who oversees the Indiana Dept. of Agriculture, welcomed farm families from across the state to the Hoosier Homestead Awards at the statehouse. Hoosier Homesteads recognize families that have owned and operated their farmland for 100, 150 and sometimes 200 years or more. Skillman presented 43 awards, including recognizing the Forrer-Wyant family of Noblesville for its 110-year-old family farm.

“Generations of Forrer-Wyant (family members) have created an ongoing legacy of hard work, skill and dedication. Economically and socially, Indiana would be a lesser place were it not for these families and their strong agricultural roots,” said Skillman. “They know and love the land and truly represent the history and success of Hoosier agriculture, a legacy that should be the pride of every Hoosier. While these farms have changed dramatically through the years, one thing has not changed, and that is each family’s commitment to agriculture and stewardship of the family farm.”

Skillman said she hopes these Hoosier Homesteads will be passed to future generations for many years to come.
