The History Colorado State Historical Fund, the Colorado Department of Agriculture, and the State Fair were proud to honor 23 new Centennial Farm & Ranch families on Friday, August 26 at the State Fair in Pueblo.

 These farming families have owned their farm or ranch for 100 years or more, and are thus eligible for Centennial Farms recognition. Each family had their group portrait and picture with legislators and public officials taken by a professional photographer. They also received a Centennial Farms metal sign, a tribute signed by stage legislators, and a Centennial Farms certificate signed by the executive director of History Colorado, the Commissioner of Agriculture, and the governor.
There are now 522 Centennial Farms across Colorado.
