WEST ALLIS – Tina and Dale Logslett and Laurie and Ken Schmitt, both of the Colfax area, were honored at the 2018 Wisconsin State Fair, presented by U.S. Cellular, for their Century Farm.

The Century Farm Awards Program began in 1948 as part of Wisconsin’s Centennial Celebration. The program honors families who have had continuous ownership of their Wisconsin farm or home for 100 years or more. For the past 44 years, Hillshire Farm of New London, Wis., has sponsored the Awards Program. Compeer Financial also sponsored the Awards Program.
