Pawelek-Moczygemba Coyote Place honored
AUSTIN -- In a celebration of agriculture and family heritage, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples honored 119 farms and ranches, spanning 74 Texas counties -- including Wilson County -- on Nov. 3, at the 36th annual Family Land Heritage ceremony. The ceremony, which was held in the House Chamber at the Texas State Capitol, recognized families who have kept their farms and ranches in continuous agricultural production for 100 years or more.
Among the honorees are the Pawelek-Moczygemba Coyote Place in Wilson County, Krejci’s Rocky Hill Ranch in Gonzales County, Tiemann Farm in Guadalupe County, Paradise Hill Farm and Cemetery in Karnes County, Reyes Farm and Ranch in Atascosa County, and Harry Grosser Ranch in Bexar County.
Among the properties honored was the Charco Redondo Ranch in Duval County, which marked 200 years of continuous agricultural production. Six other family operations celebrated 150 years of continuous agricultural service in the counties of Blanco, Denton, Fort Bend, Robertson, Van Zandt, and Walker.
To date, the Texas Department of Agriculture has recognized more than 4,500 properties in 237 counties across Texas. Fayette County, with 151 family operations honored, has been recognized more than any other county since the Family Land Heritage program began. This is the first year the program recognized landowners in Carson and Pecos counties.
