It could have gone to any of them.</p><p>On their farm near Klossner, about 10 miles north of New </p><p>Ulm, the Bastian family raises corn, soybeans, hogs and a few chickens as well.</p><p>Mike said that farming was always his chosen profession.</p><p>Without a doubt, I knew what I wanted to do since I was little, he said.</p><p>He began farming with his parents near Klossner in the mid-1980s upon graduating from the University of Minne-sota, Waseca. With ag markets down then, it was a tough time to jump in, but there were also opportunities, he said.</p><p>He later expanded his opera-tions to include a neighbor and great uncles farm.</p><p>He said the key to longevity as a farmer is understanding that in good times, the bad times are just around the corner.</p><p>We had great years, but we never went out and splurged, he said. Its always a big risk, but thats farming.</p><p>Anna was born and raised in New Ulm. Growing up, she loved animals and thought about having a hobby farm. When she met and married her husband, she thought Nows my chance.</p><p>She also works at the New Ulm Medical Center but helps out with crops and livestock.</p><p> e eldest daughter, Abby, is a graduating North Dakota State University senior who majored in Ag Communication and Ad-vertising. Allison, the current Minnesota Pork Ambassador, is a freshman at Iowa State study-ing Ag Business and Animal Sci-ence and intends to return to the home farm a er school. She is currently doing an internship at AgStar in Mankato.</p><p>Were taught how to advo-cate because there is such a false perception of agriculture, Al-lison said.</p><p> e youngest, Audra, loves animals, dance, volleyball and softball. All three daughters have been or are active in 4-H, FFA and showing pigs at the County and State Fair.</p><p>The Bastians are also in-volved in the community. Mike is a board member of the St. George Catholic Church and a past board member of the Nicollet County Pork Producers. Anna is a member of the Nicol-let County Extension Commit-tee and is a past 4-H club leader.</p><p>Representing agricultural achievement in diverse farming operations, 70 families from throughout Minnesota are being honored as a 2015 Farm Family </p><p>of the Year by the University of Minnesota.</p><p> e annual farm family re-cipient is chosen locally by a committee of past recipients and Extension Committee members based on their demonstrated commitment to enhancing and supporting agriculture and com-munity involvement.</p><p> ere are lots of good farm-ers in Nicollet County, Mike said. I owe some of my success to them.</p><p>The farm families receiv-ing this years honors exemplify what makes Minnesota agri-culture strong, said Bev Dur-gan, Dean of Extension. ey bring innovation, science and hard work to farming. They care greatly about the land and animals and delivering quality products to consumers world-wide. e University of Minne-sota takes great pride in honor-ing these families.</p><p>Bastians named 2015 Nicollet County Farm Family of the Year</p><p>Between planning and harvest, a big activity on the Bas-tian family farm is getting ready for the Nicollet County fair. Here, Allison and Audra walk their pigs in preparation for 4H showmanship competition while father Mike watches.
