Jefferson County Farm Family

David and Janet Reed and family were among the families honored during the Missouri Farm Family Day, Aug. 15 at the Missouri State Fair. The Reed Family was selected as the Jefferson County Missouri Farm Family by the Jefferson County Extension Council and local Farm Bureau. The families proudest crop is their children and grandchildren. The farm is also co-owned by Martha Reed, David’s sister. Each year, the fair sets aside a day to recognize farm families from across the state who are active in their communities, involved in agriculture and participate in local outreach and extension programs such as 4-H or FFA.
