Cleburne County family respected as Century Farm
  WOODROW — Tom E. Hearst homesteaded 160 sections of land on Bear Mountain in Cleburne County on May 27, 1920.

Honoring both the Brownfield and Hearst families, the land is referred to now as the Brownfield Farm. Tom E. Hearst is an extraordinary uncle to Pauline Hearst Brownfield, who, alongside her better half, William Chester Brownfield, possessed the land from 1976 until 2020.

Sue Glover, 72, and Glenda Carter, 69, acknowledged the honor for their family Dec. 11 when Gov. Asa Hutchinson and Secretary of Agriculture Wes Ward respected 30 families at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Little Rock. The Arkansas Century Farm Program, controlled by the Arkansas Department of Agriculture, praises ranches with in excess of 10 sections of land claimed by a similar family for in any event 100 years. "The acknowledgment of the Hearst/Brownfield Farm as a Century Farm is an honor for our whole family," Sue Glover said. "Perceiving the Century Farms shows the significance that horticulture has in our state, even by the little rancher. Acknowledgment by Gov. Hutchinson, Secretary Ward and their whole staffs shows their obligation to horticulture and our legacy. We say thanks to them for their work in this program." Glenda Carter added: "Tragically William Chester Brownfield kicked the bucket on Feb. 19, 2020, at 96 years old, and that Pauline Hearst Brownfield passed on Aug. 11, 2020, at 92 years old and couldn't get the Century Farm acknowledgment themselves. The two of them put in numerous days chipping away at the ranch. They were both mindful of the homestead being chosen for acknowledgment and anticipated the stylized introduction."
