Hello! My name is Erin Jones, and I am working on behalf of the Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County.

It is my goal to establish a registry of agricultural sites including ranches, farms, and orchards that have been operated by a single family for 100 years (January 1, 1918.) The line of ownership from the original settler may be through children, grandchildren, siblings, and nephews or nieces, including through marriage or adoption.

The registry is an honorific program designed to document agricultural history in the State of California. Further, the Museum of Sutter County hopes to offer tangible recognition, by way of sign or plaque, for the farms to proudly display on their property.

Does your site qualify as a California Century Farm? In order to be recognized, please submit our CACenturyFarm registration questionnaire to cacenturyfarms@gmail.com.

On behalf of myself and the Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County, thank you for participating in this programI look forward to hearing from our pioneering families!

**Please note: CACenturyFarms does not intend to violate any personal privacy or publish information that farm owners are uncomfortable with. We will NEVER publish your address, contact information, or site details that you have asked us to exclude. Our mission is to preserve agricultural history and the legacies left by California’s pioneering families. We are non-partisan and non-commercial. Thank you for supporting the project and your fellow Century Farmers.

  1. I was at a class at the Ag office when to spoke about the century farms. My husband family has owned and worked his grandparents farm for over 100 years. I am interested in finding out more about this. Thank you.

  2. Hello Mrs. Heryford,

    First, I would sincerely like to thank you for your interest! I am excited to share more about the project with you.

    I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Please contact me at cacenturyfarms@gmail.com.

    If you are interested and ready to be included in the registry, please complete the Century Farm Registration Questionnaire and forward it to cacenturyfarms@gmail.com. Once submitted, I may begin to research your family farm, fill in any missing tidbits, and preserve your family’s agricultural heritage.

    Again, thank you for your interest in the program. I look forward to hearing any questions, comments, or concerns you may have and including your family’s agricultural heritage with CACenturyFarms.

    Happy Holidays,
