Several in the area

    More than 200 Century farms, including those in Crookston, will be honored at the Minnesota State Fair in 2014. A Century Farm is marked by 100 years of ownership in the same family and must be five acres or more.                    

    The program is sponsored by the State Fair and Farm Bureau, with a wall at the state fair with the name of the farms, and the families receive a metal sign.
