Mark and Christine York have made a career out of revolutionizing how farmers go about business in the pork industry.

They recently earned a prestigious award for their efforts, as they were announced as the Indiana Prairie Farmer Master Farmers for 2018 in the 50th anniversary of the award.

“It was very, very humbling to be one of four in the whole state of Indiana, changing or advocating for agriculture,” York said. “And, being in Wabash County it’s humbling. Orville Chamberlain won the award (in 1970), and he was a Wabash producer.”

 

The Yorks and Chamberlain are the only Wabash County farmers to win the award.
