State Honors Century-Old Farms

Indiana is saluting 55 family farms which have stayed in operation through multiple generations.

Twice a year, Indiana presents "Hoosier Homestead" awards to farms which have worked the land for 100 years or more. The honorees this time include two farms in Gibson and Clark Counties which have been operating for 200 years, making them older than the state itself.

Keeping the farm operating 100 years means surviving two world wars, the Great Depression and Great Recession, and countless droughts. Kent Bratton of Cynthiana says there's a simple secret: if you don't put a price on the land, you can't sell it.
