Book will highlight state's Century Farms

Missouri

The Missouri Century Farm program recognizes farms that have stayed in families for more than 100 years. To celebrate the program's 35th anniversary, the University of Missouri and the Missouri Farm Bureau will release a commemorative book showcasing Missouri Century Farms. Century Farm owners are invited to submit materials for inclusion in this anniversary book.

"Missouri's Historic Farms: Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the Missouri Century Farm Program," to be published by Acclaim Press, will highlight the historical and educational value of Missouri Century Farms. Submissions from farm owners will be among the hundreds of features with histories and photographs of Missouri Century Farms.

The book will include biographical sketches; regional histories; a special feature on how agriculture has changed through the years, including technology, crops and equipment; and the 35-year history of the Missouri Century Farm program.

"The longevity of a family to continually pass down an operating farm for 100 years or more in this day and age is a rare thing," said Randy Baumgardner, managing editor for Acclaim Press. "I think it's great to share the passion they have for their family and heritage."

Copies can be reserved for $49.95, or $79.95 for a leather-bound collector's edition. For more information on ordering or submitting information about your farm, see the Missouri Century Farm website at http://extension.missouri.edu/centuryfarm or call Acclaim Press toll-free at 877-427-2665.
