Information Services Corporation (ISC) (TSX:ISV) is celebrating the legacy of family farms in Saskatchewan and will honour more than 190 Saskatchewan families with a Century Family Farm Award this June.
The program is aimed at celebrating family-owned farms that have been in operation for 100 years or more.
“For a family to work the same land through several generations, is to be a part of Saskatchewan’s history,” says ISC President and CEO Jeff Stusek. “ISC is proud to recognize families that have reached this significant milestone in the legacy of their family farm.”
Since starting the program in 2007, ISC has honoured nearly 4,300 Saskatchewan farm families with a Century Family Farm Award.
ISC is a safekeeper of important historical documents including land grants and titles, geographic maps and photos, and survey information
As part of the recognition, each family receives a high-quality reproduction of their ancestor’s original land title.
Families receiving awards will be attending celebratory luncheon events in Regina at Turvey Centre on June 19 and in Saskatoon at the Western Development Museum on June 20.
