Families who have owned and farmed the same land for at least 100 years can apply for the 2018 Arkansas Century Farm program.

The Arkansas Agriculture Department (AAD) will accept applications, which can be found at www.aad.arkansas.gov/arkansas-century-farm-program, through May.

There is no cost to apply.

The Arkansas Century Farm program started in 2012. Since that time, 376 farms have been certified.

“When families are strong, our communities are strong, and our state is strong,” Gov. Asa Hutchinson said to farm families at the 2017 Arkansas Century Farm Inductee Ceremony at the State Capitol.
