Windsor resident Lola Belle Bottrell and her family gathered Saturday, April 8 at Eagle Creek Resort to receive the Sesquicentennial Farm Award from State Rep. Bob Flider, D-Mount Zion.

The Sesquicentennial Farm program honors generations of farmers that have worked to maintain farms held by the same family for at least 150 years. The Bottrell Farm, located in rural Shelby County, dates back to Lola’s great-grandfather John Scroggins who began the farm in 1855. James, Cathy, Susan, and Timothy Bottrell took over operations of the farm in 1985 and the land is currently farmed by Tom, Dusty, and Stacy Cole of Windsor.
