For more than 50 years, the Nebraska Pioneer Farm Award has honored farm families in Nebraska whose land has been owned by the same family for 100 years or more. The Pioneer Farm Awards are sponsored by the Nebraska Farm Bureau and supported by the Nebraska Association of Fair Managers
. To date, more than 8,000 families in all 93 Nebraska counties have been honored. Recipients are presented both a plaque and gate post marker during the annual county fair in which the land is owned.
Farm families must fill out an application
, have it signed by a local county fair board member, and the form is then submitted to the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben by May 1.
