Osage County Farm Bureau asks: Do you live on a Century Farm?

Tradition and heritage is 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 leading agriculture advocacy organization, is launching the thirteenth year of its program for the new millennium 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 1914 or before. Qualifying farmers will receive a farm sign designating “Century Farm” status and recognition from Kansas Farm Bureau.

During the first twelve years of the Century Farm Program, more than 2,200 family farms qualified for the Farm Bureau Century Farm designation.

Application can be found at KFB.org website, or stop by the Osage County Farm Bureau Office at 509 Market, Osage City, KS or call 785-640-2342. The deadline for consideration this year is May 15, 2014.
