ISC Honouring 635 Families With A Century Family Farm Award

June 3, 2010

Information Services Corporation (ISC) is honouring 635 farm families across Saskatchewan in 2010 with a Century Family Farm Award. 

The award recognizes families who have owned and operated the same farm for 100 years or more. Awards will be handed out at events held across the province in June. 

“The family farm has always been the backbone of Saskatchewan’s economy and has helped shape the rural traditions of our province,” said Minister Responsible for ISC June Draude. “Homesteaders had a strong work ethic and today’s farm families have that same strength and character. I congratulate all recipients for reaching the centenary milestone.” 

This year marks the second-highest year for number of award recipients since the program began in 1981, following a record year in 2009 of 661 families honoured. In total, 3,990 families have received the award over the program’s 30 year period. 

“Agriculture has always played a significant role in the Saskatchewan economy,” said Minister of Agriculture Bob Bjornerud. “It is heart warming to see the number of families who have continued in the footsteps of their ancestors, and are bringing new ideas and innovation to this uniquely prairie way of life.”

The ISC Century Family Farm Awards are delivered on an annual basis. Recipients must apply for the awards by March 15, and meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Members of the same family have farmed or ranched the land continuously for 100 years or more
  • The family lives in Saskatchewan and continues to operate their farm or ranch

All recipients receive a colour copy of their family’s original land grant or title, as well as ISC Century Family Farm Award certificates and a choice of award: an indoor wall plaque or a gate sign. All bear the ISC Century Family Farm Award logo, the family farm name and the year it was established. 

Four celebratory events are being held to honour recipients in June in the following locations:

  • Regina – Wednesday, June 16, Queensbury Convention Centre, Evraz Place
  • Swift Current – Tuesday, June 22, Credit Union iPlex
  • Saskatoon – Thursday, June 24, Western Development Museum
