Every year since 1987, the Becker County Fair has held a special awards ceremony to honor the county’s century farms — those that have been in the continuous ownership of the same family for 100 years or more.


Since that time, a total of 87 farms in the county have been awarded century farm status — and this year, three more were added to the list, bringing the total to 90 overall.
