Farm-City Week 2021 | Connected to Our Roots

In the wake of a tumultuous year and the “new normal,” we have found ourselves searching for comfort in nostalgia and hope in the future. This year’s theme is “Connected to Our Roots,” a celebration of where we come from, the people we know, and how our history sets us up for the future. Here in Harnett County, the face and age of farming are changing and we are adding new crops and new ways of farming to our traditional ones.

 To more fully embrace this next chapter of our agricultural story, we need to celebrate everything that has brought us to this point. This year, join us on November 15-18 as we enjoy farm tours, a tractor driving contest, and 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.
