2017 Pine County Farm Family of the Year

2017 Pine County Farm Family

Congratulations to David and Cheryl Jones for receiving the 2017 Pine 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.

David and Cheryl run a produce operation on about 6 acres of sandy loam soil. The rest of their tillable acreage is rented out. They grow a wide variety of produce including sweet corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, onions, peppers, squash, pumpkins and more. During the summer the family takes produce to four different markets every week.
