3 co. families earn Aksarben Pioneer Farm Award

In a fast-paced world with up to the minute news and technological advances making your cell phone obsolete upon purchase, it’s hard to imagine owning anything longer than nine-months to a year.

To put that into perspective, Nebraska has only existed as a state for152 years.
