Farm-City Week 2020 | a History of Innovation

In 2020, we’ve had a ton of things to overcome: a global pandemic, worldwide economic challenges, a sudden switch to virtual interactions rather than face-to-face, and so much more. But we’ve also welcomed new farmers to Harnett County, have remained productive and profitable, and turned to our local farms and the great outdoors to reconnect in light of socially distanced lives. This Farm-City Week, we are celebrating Harnett County Agriculture: A History of Innovation, as we take a closer look at what it means to adapt in the face of adversity, find or create new opportunities, and redefine success.

This year, please join us on November 9–12, 7–8 p.m. over Zoom as we enjoy virtual farm tours and farmer interviews, ag trivia and door prizes, and learn how to cook our own Farm-City banquet. We will close a week of activities with a special presentation by Craig Senter and the awards for Farm Family of the Year, Female Agriculturalist of the Year, Friend of the Farmer, and Innovative Farmer of the Year.

Register for our activities on Eventbrite.
