The Pickaway County Fair opens Monday in Circleville.
As part of the official opening, Ohio Department of Agriculture is honoring three local families who have maintained their farms for more than 200 years.
The Fagan family farm from 1809, and both Cromley and Cromley-Connor families in 1803.
Ohio’s Century Farm program was started in 1993 to honor families who have maintained their farming operations in the same family for at least 100 years.
Ohio has more than 1,000 Century or Bicentennial Farm families registered, spanning all 88 counties.
