South Dakota families having ownership of their farm or ranch for 100, 125 or 150 years

State Fair in Huron. Applications are due by Aug. 9.

To qualify as a South Dakota Century Farm or Ranch, a family must have retained

continuous ownership of at least 80 acres of original farmland for 100 years or more. If the

family ownership of land has reached 125 or 150 years, you may apply to be recognized

Documentation of the original date of purchase must be included with the application.
