Chris and Nicole Fleak and their sons Zach and Andrew were among the families honored during the 60th annual Missouri Farm Family Day at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.
The Fleaks were chosen as the Adair County Missouri Farm Family by Adair’s University of Missouri Extension. They are active in the Adair County 4-H Club and La Plata FFA.
Chris is an applicator for Nutrien Ag Solutions and Nicole is the promotions and special events Manager for Sydesnstricker John Deere. Zach is a freshman at Northwest Missouri State, majoring in agricultural science, while Andrew is a sophomore at La Plata R-II.
“It is an honor to represent Adair County as the 2018 Farm Family and continue to be advocates for agriculture,” Nicole said in a press release.
This year, all 114 Missouri counties plus the City of St. Louis participated in the Farm Family Days event, honoring nearly 490 people from 115 families.
“The event showcases the impact Missouri Farm Families have on the economy and heritage of the state,” Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe said.
