Sunlight Farm Century Farm

A few miles west of the current town of Belgrade, nestled in the Ozark Hills is Sunlight Farm, a Century Farm that is still going strong. This farm has been a working farm since its inception in the early 1900s. Two brothers, Bryce & Chad Nickelson, still raise cattle on the farm and have high hopes that their children will continue the tradition. Listen to Bryce & Chad give the history of Sunlight Farms and what they hope for in the future

Lester Henry 2020 Century Farm Recipient

Just on the edge of Potosi, a century farm sits. It has been in the same family since 1919 and was awarded the title of Century Farm in 2020. This farm has a long history, as it was part of the original Spanish Land Grant to Moses Austin (father of Stephen Austin, known as “The Father of Texas”).
