Kansas Farm Bureau to honor tradition, heritage of family farms

Kansas Farm Bureau is continuing in 2022 its recognition of “Sesquicentennial Farms” in conjunction with KFB’s annual “Century Farm” program. The Century Farm program honors farms with ownership of at least 80 acres within the same family for 100 years or more. The Sesquicentennial Farm recognition goes beyond that to farms in the same family for 150 years. Both programs require an applicant to be a Farm Bureau member in Kansas.

The deadline for consideration to be part of the 2022 programs is May 15. Since the year 2000, Kansas Farm Bureau has recognized more than 3,100 family farms. Complete details for qualification and applications for both programs can be obtained at county Farm Bureau offices across Kansas or on the KFB website at www.kfb.org/centuryfarm.
