Wenger farm becomes Century Farm
The Clarence Wenger Family farm, located three miles north of Wayland on 320th Street, was recently added to the Iowa Century Farms Register. Honored at the Iowa State Fair were Clarence and Dorothy Wenger. They were joined by 70 family members. Born on the dairy farm, Clarence, 88, and Dorothy 86, still reside on the farm today. Family came from seven states: Pennsylvania, Virginia, Minnesota, Missouri, Tennessee, California and various parts of Iowa for the event. This was the first time some family members attended the Iowa State Fair. The shirts the family were wearing were designed by their grandson, Conrad Yutzy.
