Governor Becky Skillman, right, and Acting Indiana Agriculture Director Ken Klemme, left, recently presented the Smock family with a Hoosier Homestead Award in recognition of their more than 100-year commitment to Indiana agriculture. In 1885 the Smock family established their farm near Delphi. Kristen Bubb, center, granddaughter of John Smock, was at the Indiana Statehouse where she accepted the award on behalf of the Smock family, The Smock family farm joins nearly 4,500 Hoosier Homestead farms. To be named a Hoosier Homestead, farms must be owned by the same family for more than 100 consecutive years and consist of more than 20 acres or produce more than $1,000 of agricultural products per year.
