Although our mission is to offer recognition to California’s Century Farms, there are many significant agricultural sites that do not meet our criteria, yet. In this post, I hope to include farms that will one day be included in the registry.
These farms have already created influential legacies but have not yet met the 100 year requirement:
- The Golden Gate Hop Ranch, purchased by current owners in 1941.
- Oji Brothers Farm inc., established 1948. The Oji family were prominent farmers in the West Sacramento area as early as 1926 but due to laws excluding Asian-Americans from property ownership, the family cannot claim land ownership prior to this date.
Agricultural sites that have come and gone or, have been absorbed by other families:
- The Ohleyer Family Farm, established 1830-200(?). Current state, unknown.
