Pioneer/Heritage Farm Awards
For more than 60 years, the AKSARBEN foundation has honored Nebraska Farm Families with the Pioneer or Heritage Farm Awards for 100 and 150 years of consecutive farm ownership, respectively, within a single family. Nebraska Farm Bureau and the Nebraska Association of Fair Managers partner with the AKSARBEN foundation to present these awards to families each year at the county fair in which each farm is located.
