REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (AP) - The state of Ohio says that last year it added 104 historic farms to the list of those that have been in the same family for at least 100 years.

The state Department of Agriculture says the Ohio Bicentennial and Century Farms program list now tops 1,100. Each new family registered for the list received a certificate signed by Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik).

The Ohio Bicentennial and Century Farms program has since 1993 recognized families that have owned their farms for at least a century. In 2013, the agriculture department began recognizing farms that reached their 200-year anniversary of same-family ownership.

Anyone who can verify that a currently owned farm has remained in their family for at least 100 consecutive years can register.
