If you own one of the nearly 6,000 Hoosier Homestead farms across Indiana, just about three weeks remain to submit your free farm history for the upcoming Hoosier Homestead Farms – Honoring Farm Legacy coffee table book.

“We’ve received a very good amount of farm histories for the book, but there’s many more out there who need to submit theirs,” said Linda Forler, director of the Hoosier Homestead Program. “It’s free, it’s a great way to write down the story and history of your farm, and it’ll help you and your family learn about your farming heritage.”

If you own a farm that’s been recognized as one of the nearly 6,000 Hoosier Homestead Farms, we need you to submit a free 300 word history of your farm and a photo for the book. Your farm history and photo are included in the book regardless of whether you purchase a copy or not.

Information you should include – year the farm started, how many generations have worked/owned it, crops grown, places you sell your crops, year your farm was inducted as a Hoosier Homestead Farm, etc. You can also visit the publisher’s website,, and find the Hoosier Homestead book cover on the front page and fill out your farm history from there.
