Small Farms Week

— Written By 2021 Small Farms Week Logo

This year marks the 35th year of our annual salute to small famers across North Carolina. The 35th annual Small Farms Week will take place virtually March 21–27, 2021, with the theme “35 Years: Resilience. Strength. Diversity.” The event will offer a variety of educational programs designed to inform the public about their agricultural neighbors and provide research-based information to support small-scale farmers. A virtual kickoff preceding Small Farms Week will take place Friday, March 19, and highlight agriculture in Avery County, the home of the 2020 Small Farmers of the Year, Amos and Kaci Nidiffer.

On Wednesday, March 24, The Small Farmers’ Appreciation Program will include a keynote address by Jimmy Gentry, president of the North Carolina Grange, and the announcement of the 2021 Small Farmer of the Year. You can register at the Small Farms Week registration web page. To learn more, visit the Small Farms Week 2021 web page. Please feel free to share this information with others in your network.
