AUSTIN -- Continuing a proud tradition of honoring hardworking Texas farmers and ranchers, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples invites families to apply for the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Family Land Heritage Program. According to a March 20 Texas Department of Agriculture press release, the program recognizes family farms and ranches that have been in continuous agricultural production by the same family for at least 100 years. Applications are due Wednesday, May 1.

The 2013 Family Land Heritage ceremony will be held this fall at the Texas Capitol in Austin and will recognize farms and ranches established in 1913 or earlier.

Eligible farms and ranches must still be owned and operated by the descendants of the founder, either through blood, marriage, or adoption. At least 10 acres of the land must be in continuous agricultural production for the past 100 years or more. There is no cost to apply for the recognition.

In 2000, the program began honoring families for 150 and 200 years of continuous agricultural production. Since then, 122 farms and ranches have been recognized for 150 years of operation and six ranches have been honored for 200 years of operation.

Applications for the 2013 Family Land Heritage recognition are available for download at www.TexasAgriculture.gov by clicking the Family Land Heritage icon in the middle section of the home page.

For more information, e-mail Jill Selman at Jill.Selman@TexasAgriculture.gov.
