Hoosier Homestead Farm

I have other pictures of this place I have taken through the years, but I don't remember this sign. But in the other pictures there was a sign on the barn that is not there now. So, I think it must have been a version of this sign.
The Hoosier Homestead Award was started in 1976, for farms that have been in the same family for 100 years or over. It is in recognition of what farming has meant to and given to Indiana: economic growth, cultural and social advancements.
The farms must have at least 20 acres or produce at least $1,000 in agricultural products during one year.
