Do you live on a Century Farm?

Tradition and heritage is a big part of what makes agriculture such an attractive way of life for so many Kansans. The lifeblood of our existence, the farms and ranches in Kansas, provide food, fuel and fiber for the world.

The history of these farms and ranches is rich, with many stories to tell. In that spirit, Kansas Farm Bureau, the state's leading agriculture advocacy organization, is launching the 2015 program to honor those family farms that have passed down this heritage for more than a century.

The Kansas Farm Bureau “Century Farm” program will recognize family farms whose current owner/operator is related to the owner/operator of the farm in 1914 or before. Qualifying farmers will receive a farm sign designating “Century Farm” status and recognition from Kansas Farm Bureau.

“As farmers and ranchers, we are proud of our legacy and heritage,” said Steve Baccus, Kansas Farm Bureau president. “The Century Farm program will help others better appreciate the strong family ties and tradition that we hold so dear.”

Since the year 2000, Kansas Farm Bureau has recognized nearly 2,300 family farms. 

The deadline for consideration is May 15, 2015.
