Farm-City Week 2017

The Farm-City program brings the city and the country together by fostering relationships between rural farmers and urban workers.  This year, the week before Thanksgiving has been designated as Farm-City Week.  This years theme is “Agriculture: Food for Life”, and captures the essence of farming.

No other industry or activity is more connected to “life” than agriculture.  Farmers produce the grains, protein, fruit, vegetables, nuts and dairy products that sustain life.
