Local Farmers to be Honored

A Century Farm awards program will be held at the Iowa State Fair on August 23 honoring pioneer Iowa farm families who have owned the same Iowa land for 100 years or more. The program began in the bicentennial year of 1976. Since then over 6,000 farm families have been so honored.
