Learn how to register your historic family farm.

Has your land been continuously owned by the same family for a century or more (or will be)? On Saturday, February 25 at 10 a.m., you have the opportunity to learn how to qualify for Ohio Historic Family Farm status. Hear how to research and apply for the Ohio Department of Farmland Preservation designation at the Holmes County Central Library, 3102 Glen Drive, Millersburg in the downstairs meeting room.

  Sponsored by the Holmes County Historical Society and the Holmes County Recorder's Office, the workshop will feature Alan Miller, Journalism Professor at Denison University. Miller represents the eighth generation of The Yoder-Miller farm of his family at the same Holmes County farm since 1816. Miller has the only registered bicentennial farm in Holmes County. Currently there are almost 2000 historic family farms in Ohio with five in Holmes County
