MU Extension recognizes Century Farms in Greene County

Greene County farms were recognized with Century Farm status at last week’s Fifth Annual Salute to Century Farms event. Posing with the honored families is Jason Whitesell with Old Missouri Bank, and president of the Greene County Extension Council. A new recognition this year known as the “Jackie Warfel Most Valuable Farm Award” was presented to the Danny and Janet Hawk Farm near Walnut Grove. The Hawk farm has been in the family 185 years. The original farm was homesteaded in 1833 the same year that Greene County was established.
