PRESERVING
A FAMILY TRADITION

A "century farm" has been worked and owned
by the same family for 100 years or more.

It's a respect for the land, the home, the barns
and the tradition that has kept it alive
for a century.

The weathered wood. And patched roof.
Rusted plows, root cellar and chicken coop.
There's beauty in the ways of our ancestors.

This is good land.
There's much to teach the children.

  1. Si han sabido conservar una propiedad así durante tanto tiempo, es que son unos amantes de las tradiciones, y eso tenemos que saber transmitirlo a las nuevas generaciones.
