Meet some of the farming families of Blue Earth County. Learn about life on the farm and discover their successes and failures, joys and sorrows. Between 1976 and 2004, 178 farms in Blue Earth County became registered century farms having been owned and operated by the same family for at least 100 years.

When registering to become a Century Farm, applicants provided a history of the farm, including previous owners and size of the farm. Original buildings, prior occupations and corps and products the farm produced were also include, giving today’s reader a valuable look into the lives of these farmers.
