Every year farm families who have been in continuous ownership of their family farm for 100 or 150 years have the opportunity to be recognized at the Wisconsin State Fair as part of the Century Farm Awards Program. The prestigious Century and Sesquicentennial Farm and Home Awards are awarded each year to families who have been dedicated to Wisconsin farming for 100 or 150 years.
To qualify for the award, families are required to provide proof of ownership of a property in Wisconsin for the past 100 or 150 years. These property owners are honored at a special Century and Sesquicentennial Award Program held in conjunction with the Wisconsin State Fair at the Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis. Honorees receive complimentary fair admission tickets, an invi-tation to the awards breakfast, a commemorative photo, a certificate, and an outdoor display sign.
