Century Farms

Owned and farmed by the hands of a single family for more than 100 years, Tennessee’s century farms are generations-rich wonders and have earned a special place in our hearts and history.

Farms owned and farmed by the same family for 100 years or more are Tennessee Century Farms, passed down from generation to generation.

The Tennessee Century Farms Program was created in 1975 by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture as part of our nations bicentennial celebration. In 1985, the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University took over the program, which was originally designed and continues to be a recognition and documentary effort.

Founded in 1775, the oldest Century farm in Tennessee is the Masengill Farm in Sullivan County.
