Each year at the Minnesota State Fair some of the oldest family farms in the state are honored as part of the Century Farm program. The application process is open now and Kristin Harner with the Minnesota Farm Bureau says there are specific criteria to be met before submitting an application.

“The farm must be at least 100 years old according to authentic land records, in continuous family ownership for at least 100 years, at least 50 acres and currently involved in agricultural production.”

Applications are available via the Farm Bureau website and must be submitted by March 2nd.
