Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Oregon Century Farm and Ranch Program began in 1958, just prior to the celebration of Oregon's statehood centennial in 1959, to honor farm and ranch families with century-long connections to the land and to recognize Oregon's rich agricultural heritage. The program introduced a Sesquicentennial Award in 2008, on the eve of Oregon's 150th anniversary. As of 2015, 1,175 families have received the Century designation and 33 families have been honored with the Sequicentennial award.

The Oregon Century Farm and Ranch Program is administered by the Oregon Agricultural Education Foundation and is supported in part by a partnership of the Oregon Farm Bureau, the State Historic Preservation Department, the Oregon Department of Agriculture, the Oregon Historical Society, and the Oregon Travel Information Council.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Oregon Century Farm and Ranch Program Records document the recognition of Oregon family farms and ranches that have been been operated continuously by a family for a century or more. The records consist primarily of application materials for each farm or ranch. The application files from 1958-2005 and administrative records from those years are held by the Oregon Historical Society.  This collection contains records from 2006 to the present. Additional records will be added to the collection on an annual basis. The application materials include completed forms, correspondence, photographs, DVDs, published narratives, maps, and copies of historical documentation of land ownership. The collection also includes admisinstrative materials, primarily from award ceremonies and lists of farms and ranches that received Century or Sesquicentennial designation from 2006 to present.

The records include more than 220 photographs submitted with applications; most of these images are duplicates of original historical photographs of the farms and ranches. Some of the photographs are contemporary images of farm structures and family members. Color and b/w prints are included.  Several of the applications also include copies of digital image files on CD or flash drive.

Materials from the ORCFRP awards presentation program are represented and consist of program brochures and outlines, descriptions of the farms inducted, contact information for the awardees, ORCFRP newsletters, and a printed copy of the presentation.  Also included is a copy of the book "Eating It Up in Eden: The Oregon Century Farm and Ranch Cookbook" by Richard Engeman.

The collection also includes a database (in electronic form) listing all the farms and ranches that have been accepted into the program since its inception in 1958. The database includes the historic and current acreage of the property, structures currently residing on the property, the economic use of the farm or ranch, and whether the property was part of a donation land claim. An online database is hosted by the Oregon Explorer.
