A farm is eligible to be a Missouri Century Farm if a farm has been in a family since December 31st, 1922. The same family must have owned the farm for 100 consecutive years. The line of ownership from the original settler or buyer may be through children, grandchildren, siblings and nephews or nieces, including through marriage or adoption. The farm must be at least 40 acres of the original land acquisition and make a financial contribution to the overall farm income.

There are more than 8,000 Missouri farms which have been designated as a Century Farm designation.
