100 Year Farms Honored

Iowa Ag Secretary Bill Northey handed out certificates at the Iowa State Fair to honor those who have had a farm in their family for 100 years. Northey says the number of farms meeting the mark has stayed pretty steady.

Northey also recognized heritage farms today too.

You can find out more about the century and heritage farm programs on the Iowa Department of Agriculture’s website at: www.iowagriculture.gov.
