Nebraska Pioneer Farm Family Award

In 1957 Ak-Sar-Ben began presenting the Pioneer Farm Family Award.

In order to qualify for this distinction, a parcel of land must have been owned consecutively by members of the same family for at least 100 years. For several years the awards were presented at Ak-Sar-Ben in Omaha. Later this was changed and the awards are presented by the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben and the Nebraska association of Fair Managers.

Between 1957 and 2002, over 6,000 families have received this award in Nebraska. Each honoree receives an engraved plaque and gatepost marker as permanent recognition of this milestone. The awards are presented during the annual county fair in which the land is located. The following families in the Denton Community Historical society area have received the Nebraska Pioneer Farm Family Award.
