Celebrate Our Century Farms

Lincoln County Century Farms

The Tennessee Century Farms Program was created in 1975 by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture as part of our nation's bicentennial celebration. In 1985, the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University assumed the responsibility for the program. The program was originally designed as, and continues to be, a recognition and documentary effort.
