Valley Ag Today introduces you to a local farm family that has been honored for its contributions to agriculture.

Kurt and Jenny Hamilton have been named the Indiana Farm Family of the Year by Beck’s Hybrids and Indiana AgNews.

The couple, along with their sons, Tyler and Kody, has expanded their operation from a meager 80 acres to overseeing 4,000 acres of productive operations.

They have also been involved with the Wabash Valley Fair Association for more than 20 years.  Jenny has served as marketing and events manager at the fair along with working for the Vigo County Soil and Water Board for 10 years.

 The award was presented at the Indiana Farm Bureau convention in December.
