Small Farms Week 2018

Small Farms Week, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University’s annual tribute to small-scale agriculture, kicks off March 26 with the theme “Small Farms, Big Impact.”

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 The Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T, the 32nd annual Small Farms Week begins March 26 in Robeson County – home of the 2017 Farmer of the Year – where the highlights include a panel discussion with master farmers and a tour of local farms. The event continues March 27-28 on the N.C. A&T campus with educational workshops, demonstrations and a March 28 luncheon where the 2018 Farmer of the Year will be announced.
