The Kansas Farm Bureau is recognizing “Sesquicentennial Farms” in conjunction with its annual “Century Farm” program.

The Century Farm program honors farms with owners or operators related to the original farm owner/operator for 100 years by Dec. 31, 2020. The Sesquicentennial Farm recognition goes beyond that to farms in the same family for 150 years.

“Kansas farmers and ranchers have a lot to be proud of,” Kansas Farm Bureau president Rich Felts said. “One thing we take pride in is our value in the traditions and strong family ties of rural living. Kansas Farm Bureau is honored to celebrate those through the Century Farm and Sesquicentennial Farms programs.”

The deadline for consideration to be part of the 2020 programs is May 15. Complete details for qualification and applications for both programs can be found at county Farm Bureau offices across Kansas or on the KFB website, www.kfb.org/Get-Involved/Century-Farm-Program.

Kansas Farm Bureau's mission is to strengthen agriculture and the lives of Kansans through advocacy, education and service.
