Farm City Week 2023
What is Farm City Week?
National Farm City Week
is designated the week before Thanksgiving, a perfect time of year to stop and think about where your food comes from. The National theme of Farm City 2023 is ‘Innovations in Agriculture’. North Carolina farmers work year-round to produce an abundance of food. Farm-City celebrations highlight the importance of agriculture to our economies, quality of life, and foodways, specifically recognizing the vital partnerships between rural and urban communities who prepare, transport, market, and retail our food.
