The Texas Depar tment of Agriculture recently recognized 78 farms and ranches in 60 Texas counties at the 34th annual Family Land Heritage ceremony, held in the House Chamber at the Texas Capitol. The annual event recognizes families who have kept their farms and ranches in continuous agricultural production for more than 100 years.

Among these was the Hargrove Farm in Milam County, represented by siblings Clyde L. Hargrove and Dorothy Hargrove Jenkins.

To date, more than 4,300 properties in 235 Texas counties have been recognized.

"Today, these families are the breath of life for their ancestors' dreams," Staples said. "The land they have nurtured, loved and cared for will forever be a part of the past, present and future of this great state."
