Farm-City Week 2022 | Pathways to the Future

As with many industries, agriculture is always changing. From the crops we grow, to how we grow them, agriculture is constantly adapting to better meet the needs of the states, countries, and local communities it supports. In Harnett County, farmers are identifying new crops to grow, adding new crops to their current lineup, and exploring new ways of engaging new communities. Agriculture is still the primary economic driver of both North Carolina and Harnett County and what better way to celebrate this than to check out this year’s Farm-City Week! Our theme this year is Pathways to the Future as we take a look at how technology can transform a farm, what it means to diversify an operation, and how we look toward growing a stronger future.

Help us celebrate what it means to be forward-thinking at this year’s event! This year, join us on November 15-18 as we enjoy farm tours, a tractor driving contest, and a Farm-Fresh breakfast. We invite you to attend our annual Farm-City Banquet where we will honor our Farm Family of the Year, Female Agriculturalist of the Year, Friend of the Farmer, and Innovative Farmer of the Year. We hope to see you there!

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.
