Monday, February 20th, 2012

Farms hold a central role in the heritage of our state, having formed the economic, cultural and family foundation for generations of Georgians. Some farms have been continuously operating for over 100 years and deserve recognition for their historical importance.

The Georgia Centennial Farm Program was created to draw attention to historic farms and to encourage their preservation. Since 1993, the program has recognized 401 farms around the state.  Nominees must be a working farm with a minimum of 10 acres of the original purchase actively involved in agricultural production or must generate at least $1,000 in annual income.  In addition, farms must have been continuously farmed by members of the same family for at least 100 years.
