The Arkansas Century Farm program is a program that recognizes Arkansas’s rich agricultural heritage and honors families who have owned and farmed the same land for at least 100 years. The program is voluntary, places no restrictions on the land, and does not require a fee.

To qualify, farms have to meet the following criteria:

  • The same family must have owned the farm for 100 years by December 31, 2013.
  • The farm must be at least 10 acres of the original land acquisition and make a financial contribution to the overall farm income.
