Join us in saluting the Century and Sesquicentennial Farms here in Wisconsin. Just click on the name and see some information about the farm and hear the interview with the Mid-West Farm Report.
The Century Farm Program originated as part of Wisconsin's Centennial Celebration, a 23-day Wisconsin State Fair which also gave birth to the Alice in Dairyland program. Each year about 100 properties are honored. There have been over 9,697 properties honored since the program began in 1948.
Resulting from a partnership between the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection and the Wisconsin State Fair, the Sesquicentennial Farm & Home Award Program is in it's 24th year. So far, 946 farms have received the Sesquicentennial Farm award since 1998.
