Named Farms and Ranches
Managed By: Icon Here Farm and Ranch Hands
Description:
This category will mark farms, ranches, vineyards, orchards or plantations that have publically displayed names. Farms or Ranches can be either privately or publicly owned . They also may or may not be able to be toured or visited.
Expanded Description:
The practice of farming and ranching are (arguably) the oldest professions in the world. The naming of farms and ranches is also an old practice, that tells a small story in itself. From family ancestry, children names, land terrain or a water source, farm names are as diverse as the agriculture they produce.

We will define farms by the Wikipedia article here, that states: A farm is an area of land, including various structures, devoted primarily to the practice of producing and managing food (produce, grains, or livestock), fibers and, increasingly, fuel. It is the basic production facility in food production.
Ranching we will define, from Wikipedia here, that states: A ranch is an area of landscape, including various structures, given primarily to the practice of ranching, the practice of raising grazing livestock such as cattle or sheep for meat or wool.

The size is irrevalant, as long as the farm or ranch falls into these 2 groups.

We will also accept ranches that raise other livestock (eg.. horses or donkeys)or farms that produce other crops (eg.. roses or trees) raised for sale.

Cross Waymarks will be accepted (eg.. if an Alpaca/Llama ranch is named)
