The Georgia Centennial Farm Program was developed in 1993 to distinguish family farms that have contributed to preserving Georgia's agricultural history by maintaining working farms for more than 100 years. The program has recognized over 530 farms around the state. It is administered by the Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources in a partnership with the Georgia Farm Bureau Federation; Georgia Department of Agriculture; Georgia Forestry Commission; the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter, and Georgia EMC.
Each year, qualifying farms are recognized at the opening day of the Georgia National Fair in Perry, Georgia. During the awards presentation, farm owners receive a Georgia Centennial Farm certificate of honor signed by the governor.
