Do you live on a Century Farm?

Do you live on a Century Farm?

Mission of the Century Farm and Sesquicentennial Farm program

Tradition and heritage play a big part in making 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 2019 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 1919 or before. The applicant must be a Kansas Farm Bureau member and have ownership within the same family for 100 years or more by Dec. 31, 2019, with at least 80 acres of the original Kansas farmland. Qualifying farmers will receive a farm sign designating “Century Farm” status and recognition from Kansas Farm Bureau.

Since the year 2000, Kansas Farm Bureau has recognized more than 2,800 family farms.

New for 2019, Kansas Farm Bureau will also be recognizing member families whose farms have been in the same family for 150 years. To qualify for the “Sesquicentennial Farms” recognition, the following criteria must be met:

  • Applicant must be a member of Kansas Farm Bureau.
  • Ownership within the same family for 150 years or more by Dec. 31, 2019, with at least 80 acres of the original Kansas farmland.
  • Present owner must be related to original owner.
  • Application must be submitted to local county Farm Bureau office by deadline date, May 15, 2019.

Qualifying applicants will receive a farm sign and certificate designating “Century Farm” status.
