While farming is one of the leading industries in the Midwest, Max and Lyla Radil do more than just farm - they give back.

And on August 9, they were commended for their efforts by being honored as the University of Minnesota's 2012 Farm Family of the Year at Farmfest.


"Mother Nature gives us so many things, and we just want to give back to the community," Lyla said. "But we are so shocked about receiving this honor. We had no clue that we would get something like this."
