The Ohio Department of Agriculture recognizes the many social, economic and historic contributions made by Ohio's founding farm families. The Ohio Century Farm program was developed as a way to honor these families for their enduring legacy to our state. The Bicentennial designation was adopted into the program in 2013 to celebrate the growing number of families whose farms have met the 200-year milestone.

Qualified registrants receive an heirloom certificate signed by the Governor of Ohio and the Director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Download and print the "Century Farm Registration Form" to apply for the Century Farm/Bicentennial Farm designation.

Registrants may choose to display the Century Farm yard sign. Contact the program manager for more information.
