2023 Missouri Farm Families

Farm Bureau/Farm Family Day – Monday, Aug 14

Farm Family Day is a partnership with Missouri Farm Bureau and other key industry organizations. For 63 years Farm Family Day at the Missouri State Fair has been recognizing Missouri’s Farm Families, and the role they play in our state’s economy and vitality! Nominated families from each county are selected to represent their county for this honor, based on their farming operation, their activity in their community, their participation in or with 4-H, and on upholding the qualities that honor farming’s roots.

The Missouri Farm Bureau, along with the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the Missouri State Fair and State Fair Commissioners, MU Extension and Engagement, and the University of Missouri College of Agriculture Food and Natural Resources partner annually to put on this traditional event.

The families honored represent all the varied farming operations that make up our state, from row crops and cattle, pork and chicken operations, to organic farms, nut and fruit orchard operations, agritourism and even intercity urban gardening operations — our Farm Families represent a slice of rural life in our state.
