Santa Barbara County

Century Farms & Ranches

Tradition and heritage play a big part in making agriculture such an attractive way of life for so many Californians.

The lifeblood of our existence, the farms and ranches in California, provide food, fuel and fiber for the world.

The history of these farms and ranches is rich, with many stories to tell.

In that spirit, Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau is launching the 2020 program to honor those family farms that have passed down this heritage for more than a century.

The Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau will be recognizing families whose farms have been in the same family for 100 years. To qualify for Century Farm recognition, the following criteria must be met:

  • Ownership within the same family for 100 years or more by Dec. 31, 2020, with at least 10 acres of the original SB County farmland.

  • Present owner must be related to original owner.

  • Application must be submitted to the SBCFB office by deadline date, July 1, 2020.

Qualifying applicants will receive a certificate, a decorative farm sign designating “Century Farm” status and will be recognized during our Celebrate Harvest event.
