Description:
Photograph and waymark Century Farms and Ranches that have been owned and continue to be operated by direct descendants of the same family for at least 100 years.
Expanded Description:
Century Farms and Ranches (Century Farms for short) can be found in many countries across the world (Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand to name a few). Each geopolitical entity or organization may have its own criteria for recognizing and designating a farm or ranch as a Century Farm. Some, but not all, Century Farms receive physical markers.

As these farms are typically located on private property – do not trespass.

For the purposes of this category, a Century Farm must meet three criteria:
  1. Direct descendants of the same family must have owned the farm or ranch for at least 100 years (an incorporated farm or ranch is eligible if it meets this regulation).
  2. A family member must still be living on the farm or ranch, and it must be in active operation within the family as a farm or ranch.
  3. There must be tangible proof that the farm or ranch has received such designation. This may take the form of a physical marker such as a plaque, post, etc. or a link to a website that specifies that the farm or ranch meets the first two criteria listed above.

Examples of Century Farm markers:


Ontario Century Farm Marker

Iowa Century Farm Marker

Tennessee Century Farm Marker


Examples of Century Farm websites:

  1. Ontario
  2. North Carolina
  3. New Zealand


Michigan Centennial Farms, even those already listed as waymarks in their own category, are eligible for inclusion in this category.


Instructions for Posting a Century Farms Waymark:
To post a Century Farm Waymark, find a Century Farm and provide its co-ordinates. In the Waymark title please consider including the name of the farm and the geopolitical area in which the farm is located, e.g. Smith Century Farm, Uxbridge – ON. Provide a full-frame image of the Century Farm marker if there is one, OR a link to a website that provides proof that the farm has received such recognition. Provide a second image of the farm and if it exists, its marker. Please fill in as many of the variables as possible.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To log a visit to a Century Farm provide proof of your physical visit - no virtual visits please. Proof can be in the form of an original photo that you have taken of the Century Farm including its marker if it has one, or a description of the farm and of your visit. Any additional information that you can provide about the farm is always welcome.
