History of Farm-City Week

Since 1955, National Farm-City Week has served as an opportunity to celebrate local farmers and the importance of agriculture as the foundation of our national and state economies, even as urban areas grow and the faces of agriculture change. Each year, the Kiwanis and Cooperative Extension Service join together to acknowledge accomplishments in agriculture, scholastic endeavors, and community and economic development.

Agriculture remains the number one industry in Harnett County, even as we grow in the industry due to our proximity to key areas of population growth and from the overflow of Wake and Cumberland Counties. We are in the top 30 for Cotton, Hay, Soybeans, Sweet potatoes, Tobacco, Broilers, and Hogs and Pigs, with cash receipts totaling $201, 874,095 in 2015. Harnett County farmers play a critical role in county and state economic success, with Harnett ranking 14th out of 100 counties in total cash receipts.

Farm City Week allows us to give thanks for our farmers as we recognize the Farm Family of the Year, Female Agriculturalist of the Year, Friend of the Farmer, and Innovative Farmer of the Year.
