"Surprised" is how Keith and Georgia Harper described their reaction to the news they had been selected Benton County Farm Family of the Year. The Harpers intentionally limited their chickengrowing operation to two houses to give them more time for their family and community. In addition to raising their three daughters, Keith is an elder and lay preacher at the Church of Christ in Springtown. Georgia spends much time as a 4-H leader and gardening mentor for the Bloomfield 4-H Club.
