Do you know someone who has been

farming for 60 years or longer?  

The National Society Descendants of American Farmers is committed to recognizing the hard work and dedication that American Farmers give every day.  From hauling hay, fixing fences and mowing pastures; to doctoring livestock, foaling and calving, milking and repairing farm machinery; to trimming, spraying, harvesting and more. NSDOAF recognizes the hard work and challenges that daily farm life brings.   It is our honor to recognize these incredibly hard working farmers,  by providing the prestigious Diamond Award to farmers who have given 60 years or more, to farming.  

 Recipients must have been a farmer for 60 years or more (not necessarily on the same farm). The farmer is not required to own the property he/she has been farming.
