Century Farm Markers 


The Tennessee Century Farms Program was created in 1975 by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture as part of our nation’s bicentennial celebration. The primary focus of the program is to continue honoring and recognizing the dedication and contributions of families who have owned and farmed the same land for at least 100 years. Special recognition is given to Pioneer Century Farms (farms founded in or prior to the year 1796, the year Tennessee became a state), farms in the National Register of Historic Places, farms that are part of the Land Trust of Tennessee, farms with African American founders, and farms founded by women. See website www.tncenturyfarms.org . 

At the 1977 Heritage Trust Early American Christmas Dinner, the late Richard Doughty, then president, reported that 36 Greene County farms had been recognized by the Century Farms Program. Currently the Tennessee Department of Agriculture has 68 Greene County farms in the Century Farms Program.
