Century Farm & Ranch Program

Idaho State Historical Society

"This program is designed to honor those farm and ranch families who persevered through physical hardships, natural disasters, and economic hard times to settle this great state.

The program recognizes a farm or ranch owned and operated in Idaho by the same family for at least 100 years, with 40 acres of the original parcel of land maintained as part of the present holding.

The program also honors a family farming or ranching continuously for 100 years in Idaho, but not necessarily on the same land."
