Kansas Farm Bureau Century Farm Applications Are Now Being Accepted
01/17/2018
 

Tradition and heritage are 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 largest agriculture advocacy organization, is launching the 15th year of the Century Farm program. This program honors family farms that have passed down this heritage for more than a century. 
 
It recognizes family farms whose current owner/operator is related to the owner/operator of the farm in 1918 or before. Qualifying farms 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 Rich Felts, 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, nearly 2,700 family farms qualified for the Farm Bureau Century Farm designation.  
 
The deadline for consideration is May 15, 2018. Complete details for qualification and an application can be obtained at county Farm Bureau offices across Kansas or on the KFB website here.
