The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) recently launched an improved online Century Farm and Sesquicentennial Farm directory on the MFBF website at www.fbmn.org. This is the only comprehensive online Century Farm and Sesquicentennial Farm directory available in Minnesota.
The directory provides a complete listing of the over 9,700 Century Farms in Minnesota with copies of the original applications available for viewing and printing. Each year, MFBF and the Minnesota State Fair recognize family farms that have been in continuous family ownership for at least 100 years and are at least 50 acres in size as Century Farms. In addition, the directory lists over 165 Sesquicentennial Farms in Minnesota have been recognized for 150 years of continuous family ownership.
To view the directory or for more information about the Century Farm and Sesquicentennial Farm programs, visit the MFBF website at www.fbmn.org and click on “Century and Sesquicentennial Farm” under “Consumer Engagement.”
