Farm family chosen

Thursday, September 1, 2011

Sitting on the steps of their rural Berryville home were Marianna and Harl Smith, who were named Carroll County Farm Family of the Year. They raise chickens for Tyson Foods, run a stocker/feeder operation and grow bermuda hay on their acreage near the county airport. The Smith family, which includes son Tracy Smith, his wife Courtney and daughter Baylea, will be featured in an upcoming issue of the Northwest Arkansas Farmer, published by Carroll County Newspapers, and they will be honored at the Berryville Chamber of Commerce Banquet in October. The Carroll County Farm Family of the Year is sponsored by the Arkansas Press Association, Arkansas Farm Bureau, Farm Credit Services of Western Arkansas, AGHertiage Farm Credit Services, Farm Credit MidSouth Associations and Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas, with the cooperation of other agencies.
