The Minnesota State Fair and the Minnesota Farm Bureau recognize 78 Minnesota farms as 2022 Century Farms, which includes one farm from Mower County.

The Mower representative is the Bell Farm, established in 1859.

Qualifying farms have been in continuous family ownership for at least 100 years and are 50 acres or more.

Since the program began in 1976, nearly 11,000 Minnesota farms have been recognized as Century Farms.
