Pfaff celebrates local farm receiving Hoosier Homestead Sesquicentennial Award
INDIANAPOLIS – State Representative Tonya Pfaff (D-Terre Haute) is joining the State of Indiana in commending the McLaughlin/LaDue Farm for their 150+ years of service to Vigo County. The farm has been owned and maintained by the same family since 1854 and was recently presented with the Hoosier Homestead Sesquicentennial Award.
The McLaughlin/LaDue Farm was one of the 106 Indiana family farms that were honored with the Hoosier Homestead Award. To earn the award, farms must be owned by the same family for more than 100 consecutive years, and consist of 20 acres or more, or produce more than $1,000 in agricultural products per year.
“Indiana is truly blessed to have such dedicated and hard-working families like the McLaughlins and LaDues,” Pfaff said. “To have proudly persisted and provided for Vigo County for generations upon generations is surely a feat to be honored. Without the McLaughlin/LaDue Farm’s commitment to sustaining our county through their agricultural work, our community would not be what it is today.”
