Department of Agriculture recognizes historic farms

REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio – In 2015, the Ohio Department of Agriculture recognized 114 new century or bicentennial farms owned by the same family for at least 100 or 200 consecutive years. There are now more than 1,200 farms registered across the state in the Ohio’s Historic Family Farms program.

Each family received a certificate signed by Governor John R. Kasich and Ohio Department of Agriculture Director David T. Daniels to keep with their historic documents and pass down to future generations.

“I’m glad to help bring some well-deserved recognition to these families,” said Daniels. “Their ancestors’ determination and tenacity are the foundation of our modern-day farms, and the families proudly continue their farming heritage. Together they have helped food and agriculture grow into the state’s top industry.”

Ohio’s Historic Family Farms is a voluntary program administered by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The department has recognized families who have owned their farms for at least 100 years since 1993. In 2013, the department began officially recognizing bicentennial farms in acknowledgment of the growing number of farms reaching their 200-year anniversary of same-family ownership.

For Brown County, the verified ownership who joined in 2015 include the Klein Farm (1881), the Boler Farm (1906), Holton Farm (1866) and Neal Farm (1893).

Anyone who can verify that a currently owned farm has remained in their family for at least 100 years may register. For more information, visit, or contact Cindy Shy in the Office of Communication at 614-752-9817 or
