Arkansas Farm Family Of The Year

Isbell Family

Chris and Judy Isbell of Humnoke (Lonoke County) are the 2018 Arkansas Farm Family of the Year. The honor was announced Thursday at the annual luncheon honoring the county and district Farm Families of the Year.

As Arkansas Farm Family of the Year, the Isbells will compete with 10 southeastern state winners in the 2019 Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo Southeastern Farmer of the Year program next October in Moultrie, Ga.

The Isbells said they were humbled to receive the honor.

“I was shocked, when they called our name,” Chris said. “But we are very honored. Our farm is a group of people. It’s a family. It’s not just me. It’s not just Judy. It’s Shane and Lisa, our son Mark and our daughter Whitney and their families. Of all the people in that room, many of them I know and many I don’t, they are all worthy. It is an honor to be selected out of that group.”   MORE
