Twenty-two Colorado families who have owned and operated farms and ranches for 100 years or more will be honored at the 33rd annual Centennial Farms & Ranches ceremony at 1 p.m. Friday at the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo.
One of those to be recognized will be the Aspaas Ranch of Hesperus. The families represent Colorado’s proud agricultural heritage, persevering through more than 100 years of changes and challenges.
Families will receive certificates signed by Gov. Jared Polis, Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture Kate Greenberg and Executive Director of History Colorado Steve W. Turner. They will also receive Centennial Farm & Ranch signs to display on their properties.
