On the Horizon
North Carolina is home to more than 45 county agricultural fairs, with the majority of them holding their events in late summer or early fall. The county fairs are great ways to showcase North Carolina agriculture, along with the crafting, cooking and art skills of county residents.
This year the Harnett County Regional Agricultural Fair is being held earlier than most fairs. It will be held May 2-7 in Lillington.
We have included a list of county and regional fairs in previous editions of the Agricultural Review. Because of space limitations this month, readers should go to www.ncagr.gov/markets/fairs for a link to a more complete list of 2011 county fair dates.
