Applications for the recognition of the 2019 Century Farms in Steele County are now available at the Steele County Free Fair Office. I thought I'd bring this up now as the deadline is a little earlier this year than past years. Applications are due back February 26.

Century Farms will be recognized during the Livestock Hall of Fame program on Tuesday, August 13. Farms that qualify are those that are at least 100 years old according to abstract of title, land patent, original deed, county land records, court file in registration proceedings or other authentic records. The family must have owned the farm for 100 years or more and ownership must be continuous.

Dates for the 2019 Steele County Free Fair this summer are August 13-18.
