Small Farms Week, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University’s annual tribute to small-scale agriculture, kicks off March 25, 2019, with the theme “Deep Roots, Bright Future.”

Small farms make a major contribution to the state’s $84 billion agriculture industry, but that’s not all. They support public health by providing fresh, local food, and they help protect the environment through their careful stewardship of natural resources.

Sponsored by Cooperative Extension at N.C. A&T State University, the 33rd annual Small Farms Week begins March 25 in Duplin County – home of the 2018 Farmer of the Year – where the highlights include a panel discussion with master farmers and a tour of local farms. The event continues March 26–28 on the N.C. A&T State University campus with educational workshops, demonstrations, and a March 27 luncheon where the 2019 Small Farmer of the Year will be announced.
