  • In 2012, the Arkansas Agriculture Department started the Arkansas Century Farm program to recognize Arkansas’s rich agricultural heritage and honor Arkansas farm families who have owned and farmed the same land for at least 100 years. The Arkansas Century Farm Program is a voluntary program as each family chooses to submit an application and participate in the program. The program places no restrictions on the farm and offers no legal protection. There is no cost to the family to submit an application and participate in the program. Successful applicants receive a special certificate and a metal sign identifying their historical farm.

     
    Eighty three Arkansas families became the first recognized for the new program. Secretary Calhoun presented the personalized Arkansas Century Farm signs at events in Ozark, Des Arc,Stuttgart, and Batesville in December, 2012. As each family received their sign, a family member had the opportunity to say something about the history of their farm. The following 83 families are the inaugural class of the Arkansas Century Farm program:
