Ag Department seeks 100-year farms
Continuing a proud tradition of honoring hard-working Texas farmers and ranchers, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples invites families to apply for the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Family Land Heritage program. 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 Thursday, May 1.
The 2014 Family Land Heritage ceremony will be held this fall at the Texas Capitol in Austin, where the Texas Department of Agriculture will recognize farms and ranches established in 1914 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.
Applications for the 2014 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, email Jill Selman at Jill.Selman@TexasAgriculture.gov.
