A Brandon family is receiving the “Way We Live” Award.
Albert Family Farms is one of seven farm families from across the state who will be honored with the award at this year’s Iowa State Fair.
Craig Albert took over managing the family farm in 1973 and his son Jordan did the same for his dad in 2015. The family farm consists of cow-calf pairs and row crops. Farming has brought the family together – including Craig and Judy, son Jordan, and daughter Jackie and husband Shawn and their children Carson, Gretchen and Kaydence. The family belongs to the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa Farm Bureau and Iowa Corn Growers Association – and they even host a Thanksgiving meal for anyone in the Brandon community and surrounding area.
Albert Family Farms will receive the “Way We Live” Award on Tuesday, August 17th at 11:45 am on the Anne and Bill Riley Stage at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.
