The Tennessee Century Farms Program was created in 1975 by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture as part of our nation’s bicentennial celebration.
It honors and recognizes the dedication and contributions of families who have owned and farmed the same land for at least 100 years. After 30 years, the statewide and ongoing program has 1,493 certified farms. Of that number 146 are 200 years old, 633 are 150 years old, and 714 are over 100 years old.
It is a documentary program that collects and interprets the agrarian history and culture of the state.
