Oklahoma Centennial Farm and Ranch Program Fee Increase
OKLAHOMA CITY — On January 1, 2019, the Oklahoma Centennial Farm and Ranch Program fees will increase. Increased costs in postage, printing and sign materials have required the program coordinators to reevaluate associated fees. To continue providing the program to all of the amazing Centennial Farm and Ranch families in our state, the application fee will increase to $25 and the sign fee will increase to $75. The Oklahoma Centennial Farm and Ranch Program staff thanks all of our Centennial Farm and Ranch families for their continued contributions to Oklahoma’s heritage and its economy.
