07 Oct ‘All of Us’ at UW-Madison helps honor Wisconsin farm families
The All of Us Research Program at UW-Madison is proud to be a sponsor of Wisconsin’s Century and Sesquicentennial Farm Program, which honors Wisconsin farming families who have lived and worked on their land for over 100 years.
We also believe in a healthier future for Wisconsin’s rural communities, in general, who are too often overlooked in health research. The All of Us Program aims to change this by working to engage with rural populations and work toward improved health for rural families, their communities, and beyond.
About the Century and Sesquicentennial Farm Program
The Century Farm Awards Program began in 1948 in conjunction with the State of Wisconsin’s Centennial Celebration.
There are currently nearly 10,000 Century Farms nestled throughout the Badger State.
The Sesquicentennial Program similarly originated in 1998 as part of the State’s Sesquicentennial Celebration and has since honored over 800 properties.
Each year, the annual award recipients are honored at an awards ceremony on the Tuesday during the State Fair.
