2017 Aitkin County Farm Family of the Year

Congratulations to William and Catherine Sexten for receiving the 2017 Aitkin County Farm Family of the Year Award!  

The Farm Family Recognition Program has existed for over 30 years and honors farm families from throughout Minnesota for their contributions to the agriculture industry and their local communities. This year's award recipients were recognized at a program held Aug. 3 at Farmfest in Redwood Falls, MN, as well as at locally hosted recognition events.

The Sexten Farm is a 30 head cow/calf business that sells feeder calves. The farm’s main crop is hay, in addition to growing some small grains for the herd’s feed and bedding. The Sextens also sell hay for horses and straw to contractors for landscaping.

Visit the Minnesota Farm Families of the Year website for more info on this year's award winners.
