Snohomish County in Search of Centennial Farms
EVERETT, Snohomish County, February 28, 2017—Owners of farms that have been under one family’s ownership and operated continuously for 100 years will be honored by Snohomish County at the Evergreen State Fair in August 2017. Applications for the honor are being accepted until June 1, 2017. Since 2000, this annual program has honored more than 30 farm families with a certificate of appreciation, reproduction of the farms’ historic photos, and inclusion of the farms’ history in an exhibit at the fair. Photos and a short history of each farm are also available at www.focusonfarming.org.
Farms honored in past years range in age from 100 to 150 years since their founding and are located from Arlington to Monroe and Stanwood to Ebey Island. They reflect the rich agricultural history of Snohomish County and are a source of pride not only to their owners but to our community as well.
Applications for the Centennial Farm program are due June 1, 2017. For further information and an application, contact Linda Neunzig, (425) 388-7170 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
