SALEM -- Ten Oregon farm and ranch families will be honored as century farms and one will be honored as a sesquicentennial farm on Ag Day, Sept. 3 at the Oregon State Fair.

The celebration will take place beginning at 1 p.m. in the corporate tent on the west side of the fairgrounds.

Oregon's Century and Sesquicentennial Farm and Ranch program honors farm and ranch families with century-long connections to the land.

Partners in the program include the Oregon Farm Bureau, the Oregon Department of Agriculture, the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office, Oregon Agricultural Education Foundation and Oregon State University Libraries.
