HURON, S.D. (AP) - Families that have spent 100 or 125 years of life on farming or ranching have the opportunity to be recognized during the South Dakota State Fair.

The recognition will be awarded Sept. 1 at the fair in Huron. A farm or ranch is eligible if at least 80 acres of original land have been continuously owned by the same family for 100 years or longer.

Applications can be obtained online for both the Century Farm and the Quasquicentennial Farm recognition. Documentation of the original purchase date must be included.

The deadline to apply is Aug. 11.

Since it began in 1984, there have been more than 2,800 century farms and ranches and nearly 300 quasquicentennial farms and ranches recognized.
