The Century Farms Program

The lasting heritage of agriculture is profound in America. The history and growth of our nation was guided and nourished by the farmers and ranchers who continue to cultivate the land with passion and purpose. Their effort, their legacy and their commitment endure. We welcome you to a place where we can celebrate the efforts of American agriculturists; where we can learn from those who have contributed to Agriculture’s Lasting Heritage.

At Agriculture’s Lasting Heritage you are invited to experience Century Farms across the nation. Century Farms are those agriculture operations that have been in operation for over 100 years. Walk in the shoes of a Century Farmer as you view engaging videos, read profiles of historical production facilities, dive into a historical timeline and find Century farms in your area by using the interactive map. Do you want to help a student experience Century Farms? Check out the American History and Agriculture link for relevant education resources.
