Two Davis County farms will get this year's Century Farm and Ranch award, which honors owners of agricultural properties that have been in the same family ownership for 100 years or more. Winning this year are Lawrence Briggs of Syracuse and Lyle and Genevieve Johnson of Hooper.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony on Friday, Aug. 18, at the Legacy Center during the Davis County Fair in Farmington. The award sponsors include the Utah Farm Bureau, the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food and the Utah State University extension. Since the program began in 1996, 43 farms and ranches in Davis County have received the designation.
