100-year legacy of the Hansen Brothers Ranch recognized Saturday

Hansen Family honored with Pioneer Award

Percy and Marlys Hansen, along with their sons Phil and Todd, were honored Saturday at the Morrill County Fair. They were presented with the Aksarben Pioneer Farm Award, which is awarded to families who have reached the milestone of owning at least 40 acres of farmland within one family for 100 years.

Each year, Aksarben pays homage to the hard-working Nebraska families who have done just that. This year, the Aksarben Foundation, along with Nebraska Farm Bureau and the Nebraska Association of Fair Managers announced 142 recipients of the Pioneer Farm and the Heritage Farm Awards (150 years).

To commemorate this milestone, the Hansen family received an engraved plaque and gatepost marker at the Morrill County Fair.
