Farm City Week celebrated in November
November is typically a time when we pause to give thanks for the many blessings we have in life. It also is a time to be reminded of the connection between farms and the foods we enjoy during National Farm-City Week.
Many communities across the state hold special events in recognition of the contributions of their agricultural communities.
Agriculture and agribusiness is North Carolina’s leading industry at $84 billion, and it employs more than 686,000 people.
While agriculture and agribusiness is good for our economy, it also provides us with food, fiber and fuel.
Be sure to thank a farmer this November.
