Nemaha County Farm Bureau to accept Century Farm applications
Submitted by Betty Bergman, Nemaha County Coordinator
Tradition and heritage are a part of what makes agriculture such an attractive way of life for Kansas residents. The history of these farms and ranches is rich, with many stories to tell. In that spirit, Kansas Farm Bureau, the state’s leading agriculture advocacy organization, is launching the 2018 program to honor those family farms that have been passed down through family heritage for more than a century.
The applicant must be a voting or associate Farm Bureau member in Kansas. Ownership must be within the same family for 100 or more years by Dec. 31, 2018, with at least 80 acres of the original Kansas farmland. Present owner must be related to the original owner.
The application must be submitted to the local county Farm Bureau office by the deadline date of May 15, 2018. Applications are available at the Nemaha County Farm Bureau office in Seneca or on the KFB website, http://www.kfb.org/centuryfarm/default.htm.
