The Osage County Farm Bureau honored two area farms for 100 years of operation Monday, at the organization’s annual meeting held at Grace Community Church, Overbrook.

Special guests of the evening were Rozetta and Larry Keim and David Shoup, who were awarded the Kansas Farm Bureau Century Farm Award. The award is given to family farms that are at least 100 years old, still owned or partially owned by family members, and still have some of the original acres being farmed.

Approximately 100 people attended the annual meeting and award presentation, with the awards presented by KFB District No. 2 Board Member George Pretz and KFB District  No. 3 Administrator Les Regier.

Guest speaker for the evening was the director of Kansas Farm Bureau’s Legal Foundation, Mike Irvin. The meal was catered by the Citizenship Washington Focus 4-H group.
