    VOTE: Help an Iowa Farm Family

    Since we've proven we're too good to vote on ESPN. Here is another chance for you to help out an Iowa State student and an Iowa State family.

    Here is the link to vote:
    Help Grow Your Soup: Euken Farm LLC

    Right now they are lagging a little behind, but voting continues until January 5. So if you can help them out as fellow Iowa Staters, I am sure they would appreciate it.

    Their facebook group is at:
    Vote for Euken Farms! | Facebook

    -------------------------

    This year Campbell's Soups will be preserving 5 barns as chosen by voters like you. It's part of their ongoing commitment to supporting the National FFA Organization to help develop America's future farmers and leaders through agricultural education.

    *Voting will take place from 10/1/09 - 1/5/10.

    The Euken's barn in Atlantic, Iowa was chosen as one of the 10 barns in the competition and is the only barn from Iowa.

    Campbell's will donate a dollar to each vote, and when the Eukens win, they will get their barn restored in cooperation with the Atlantic FFA Chapter.

    __________________________________________________

    A Hundred Years of Farming

    "My great-great-grandparents purchased the 320-acre farm, where the barn sits, in 1912. The barn was built in the late 1920s. Originally it was used for hay storage, animal shelter, milking cows, and housing horses. Since then the farm has been passed on down the family all the way to my parents who purchased the farm in 1987.

    Barns are a symbol of rural heritage and are landmarks in Iowa. The barn on our farm also is part of our family heritage; the barn will be designated a 'Century Farm' (Iowa recognizes farms that have been owned by one family for 100 years) in 2012, so this is an ideal time to revive the barn.

    The project will benefit my family to help preserve it for use for many more years. It will bring together current FFA members and Alumni to work on a project that has significance and symbolism for the agricultural heritage of the community. It will re-confirm the family farm heritage in Iowa and the role of the barn on family farms. The publicity about the barn revival will help educate the public about food production and the hands that produce it."

    will they also qualify for a federal farm subsidy?

    I don't think so. . .

    Chance to bump this back up. I doubt there will be any chance to "enhance" voting since this is a pretty legit competition. So vote daily for the next few months and help an Iowa Stater win!

    My guess is this comment comes from someone ignorant to how a federal farm subsidy works.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Their vote total has increased 1% over the last day so bump and hopefully they can get out of last place before too long.

    Re: VOTE: Help an Iowa Farm Family

    They're still sitting in last place with 3%, but they're just 3% away from 5th place, which would allow them to get their barn restored still.

    If you can take a few seconds to visit and vote I'm sure they would really appreciate those few seconds. Thanks.
