Cen­tury Fam­ily Farm Award recog­ni­tion pre­sented to 150 South­west fam­i­lies

The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

Close to 150 fam­i­lies from the South­west re­ceived ISC Cen­tury Fam­ily Farm Awards in recog­ni­tion of 100 years or more of con­tin­u­ous fam­ily farm­ing.

An awards event was hosted in Swift Cur­rent last week to rec­og­nize the im­por­tance of these fam­i­lies to the fab­ric of Saskatchew­an. The fam­ily farm has been a cor­ner­stone of Saskatchew­an’s econ­omy and has played an im­por­tant roll in ru­ral life.

A to­tal of 525 Saskatchew­an fam­i­lies are re­ceiv­ing Cen­tury Fam­ily Farm Awards, and since be­gin­ning in 1981 a to­tal of 4,500 farm fam­i­lies have re­ceived this hon­our.

“Reach­ing the cen­tury mile­stone of farm­ing the same land is an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment,” stated Min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices Cor­po­ra­tion Tim McMil­lan. “ These re­cip­i­ents are a tes­ta­ment to the ded­i­ca­tion and strong work ethic that farm fam­i­lies in Saskatchew­an have come to be known for.”

To be el­i­gi­ble for the award, mem­bers of the same fam­ily must have farmed or ranched the land con­tin­u­ously for 100 years or more. In ad­di­tion, the fam­ily must live in Saskatchew­an and con­tinue to op­er­ate the farm or ranch.

Award fam­i­lies re­ceives a re-print of their an­ces­tor’s orig­i­nal land grant or ti­tle, along with 12 com­mem­o­ra­tive cer­tifi­cates and ei­ther a free in­door wall plaque or cedar gate sign at a re­duced price.
