Tennessee Century Farms

The Greene County Fair will be celebrating our local Century Farms with a recognition dinner on Thursday night, August 11th at 6pm.  Sponsored by a generous donation from:

Eastman Credit Union

Invitations have been mailed out to all Greene County Century Farms.  If you have not received an invitation, please contact the fair office for information on attending.

Currently Greene County has 58 certified Century Farms, more than any other county in the state except Wilson County in middle Tennessee. Families who own a farm that may be eligible are encouraged to complete an application. To be considered for Century Farm eligibility, a farm must be owned continuously by the same family and have been in agricultural production for at least 100 years; must produce $1000 farm revenue in the year of application; must have at least 10 acres of the original farm; and must be owned by a resident of Tennessee.

Since 1984, the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University has administered this statewide project that documents Tennessee’s agricultural heritage and history. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) began the Tennessee Century Farm Program in 1976 as a bicentennial project. Throughout the years of the program, county agents and county historians have assisted in identifying and certifying applications prepared by the owners. More than 1500 families representing farms across Tennessee have submitted applications and photographs that tell the stories of state and local history.
