Farm Fame

The Cochran family’s 300-year-old Chester County farm was honored during the 2024 PA Farm Show as part of this year’s Century Farm Awards Ceremony. Just six families were recognized for keeping their farm in the family for over 100 years, and the Cochrans’ is the second in Pennsylvania to have received this Tricentennial title. Located not coincidentally in Cochranville, the farm today retains 120 acres of original land.
