If your family has lived on your farm for over 100 or 150 years you’re entitled to state recognition. The deadline to apply for the 2013 Century and Heritage Farm Program is June 1st.
“The deadline for families with a Century or Heritage applications is quickly approaching and I hope those with an eligible farm will take the time to apply,” Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey said. “This program is a great way to highlight the deep history and strong heritage of agriculture in our state.”
The ceremony to recognize the 2013 Century and Heritage Farms will be held at the Iowa State Fair and is scheduled for Tuesday, August 13th.
