Last summer, 13 farms in Winneshiek County were recognized as being either Century Farms or Heritage Farms.
Applications are now being taken for the 2018 Century and Heritage Farm Program. The program, sponsored by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, recognizes families that have owned their farm for 100 years in the case of Century Farms and 150 years for Heritage Farms.
Applications are available on the Department's website at www.IowaAgriculture.gov by clicking on the Century Farm or Heritage Farm link under "Hot Topics." Farm families seeking to qualify for the Century or Heritage Farms Program must submit an application to the Department no later than June 1st.
