Two NYM farms 100-years-old
Every year the Minnesota State Fair and Minnesota Farm Bureau recognizes family farms that have lasted for a century. This year two New York Mills farms earned that recognition.
Being a Century Farm indicates that a farm has been in the same family for at least 100 years. The farm must be at least 50 acres and continue to operate to produce agricultural products. More than 9,700 farms in Minnesota hold this status.
Richard and Karen Muckala and Albert and Violet Huwe will be recognized for their Century Farms at the East Otter Tail County Fair in Perham this weekend. Each couple will be given an outdoor sign signifying their standing as a Century Farm; along with a certificate signed by the Minnesota governor and the presidents of the Minnesota State Fair and Minnesota Farm Bureau. The ceremony will be on Sunday, July 27 at 3:30 p.m.
