Owners of century farms in Saline County, farms that have been in the same family for 100 years or more, are invited to register their farms with the University of Missouri Extension office.
Farms must have been in the same family for 100 years as of Dec. 31, 2005, passed through a line of direct descendants such as spouses, children, siblings or nieces and nephews. At least 40 acres must be a part of the original farm and must make a financial contribution to the farm.
The deadline for registering is June 15. Applications are available at the University of Missouri Extension office in Marshall or in the rotunda of the Saline County Courthouse.
A celebration of the new farms added to the list will be held in the fall.
