DES MOINES — Century and Heritage Farm families were recognized during a ceremony this week at the State Fair.
To qualify, a family must have owned at least 40 acres for 100 years or more in the case of Century Farms and 150 years or more for a Heritage Farm.
This year, 341 Century Farms and 56 Heritage Farms were recognized, according to a news release.
The Iowa Department of Agriculture has partnered with the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation since 1976 to recognize families that have owned and worked a farm for 100 years or more.
The Heritage Farm program was started in 2006, on the 30th anniversary of the Century Farm program, and now more than 500 farms have been recognized.
