Greenbrier Valley Conservation District announces Century Farm Program

The Greenbrier Valley Conservation District is pleased to announce that the West Virginia Association of Conservation Districts is continuing the West Virginia Century Farm Program.

We are seeking to recognize families who have been farming the same tract of land for at least 100 years. The farm must have been in continuous operation by the same family and a family member must live on the farm or be an integral part of the day-today operation of the farm enterprise. The farm must also consist of at least 10 acres of the original holdings and gross more than $1,000 annually from farm products.

For recognition, applications must be received by the GVCD no later than May 1. Signs will be awarded to the Century Farm families selected by the GVCD. For an application form, please contact the Greenbrier Valley Conservation District at 304-645-6173 or the USDA Farm Service Agency at 304-645-6172. Both are located at 179 Northridge Drive, Lewisburg, WV 24901.
