MANHATTAN – Kansas Farm Bureau is recognizing “Sesquicentennial Farms” in conjunction with its annual “Century Farm” program. The Century Farm program honors farms who have owners or operators related to the original farm owner/operator for 100 years by Dec. 31, 2019. 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,” Rich Felts, Kansas Farm Bureau president, says. “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 2019 programs is May 15. Complete details for qualification and applications for both programs can be obtained at county Farm Bureau offices across Kansas or on the KFB website, https://www.kfb.org/Get-Involved/Century-Farm-Program.
