Farm Family of the Year
Cooperatives Are Proud Sponsors of the Arkansas Farm Family of the Year
The Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas were founded to serve rural Arkansans.
Today, the cooperatives continue this effort by providing reasonably priced, reliable
electric service to Arkansas’ farmers and supporting programs like the Farm Family of the Year.
Since 1947, the Arkansas Farm Family of the Year Program has served as a vehicle to
recognize outstanding farm families throughout the state. The Farm Family of the Year Program
begins each year with a selection of top farm families in each county and culminates in
December with the selection of the state Farm Family of the Year. County, district and state
winners all are judged on their farm production, efficiency and management, family life and
rural/community leadership and values.
