INDIANA — Out of Indiana’s 92 counties, over one-third so far have seen at least one Hoosier Homestead farm submit their farm history for the upcoming coffee table book, Hoosier Homestead Farms – Honoring Farm Legacy. The book will be published by Acclaim Press endorsed by the Indiana State Department of Agriculture and the Hoosier Homestead Program. While the book is filling up, more farms are still needed.
“This book is a great opportunity for our Hoosier Homestead families to continue to be recognized for their ancestors’ hard work and time-honored family traditions,” said an ISDA representative. “We encourage all Hoosier Homestead farms to reach out to Acclaim Press with any questions and to express your interest. This book will outlast many generations and is something additional that can be passed down through the years.”
If you own a farm that has been recognized as one of the nearly 6,000 Hoosier Homestead Farms, we need you to submit a 300-word history of your farm and a photo for the book. Your farm history and photo are included in the book for no charge to the families, regardless of whether you purchase a copy or not.
Information you should include: year the farm started, how many generations have worked/owned it, crops grown, places you sell your crops, year your farm was inducted as a Hoosier Homestead Farm, etc. You can also visit the publisher’s website, , and find the Hoosier Homestead book cover on the front page and fill out your farm history from there.
“One of the great things about farming in Indiana is different crops are grown in different parts of the state, giving us a very diverse farming and agriculture community statewide,” the ISDA representative added. “This book will provide Indiana farmers a great glimpse into farming in other regions of the state through the farm histories that are submitted. Don’t let your Hoosier Homestead Farm be left out!”
