Recently Colorado's centennial farmers and ranchers were recognized by the State Legislature for their strength, endurance, and perseverance despite the economic challenges modern farming and ranching presents.
The Colorado Centennial Farms program designates farms and ranches that have been owned and operated by the same family for 100 years or more.
Annual Awards Ceremony
Each year, Colorado's newest centennial farm and ranch families are honored during an awards ceremony held in late August at the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo. Honorees receive a sign to display on their property, as well as a certificate signed by the Governor and other state officials.
