Cathy Scheibe, LaMoure, has received the Friend of the Farmer award from the Northern Plains Sustainable Ag Society.
An NPSAS member, she was chosen for her continued support and commitment to the organization.
A statement from NPSAS said Scheibe provides the grounds and building in LaMoure where a weekly farmers market is held. Toy Farmer, the international magazine for farm toy collectors that she and her husband, Claire, started, auctions off a toy tractor with proceeds donated to the NPSAS general operating fund.
The couple also supported local farm youth groups such as FFA and 4-H by creating a memorial scholarship.
Scheibe’s involvement with Probstfield Farm Living History Foundation led her to purchase and donate the 30-plus-acre Old Trail Market property. She was the driving force for creating the Probstfield Farm Sunday Supper, a farm-to-table fundraiser that continues with her support.
