Small Farms Week


In light of the global coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), Cooperative Extension at N.C. A&T has cancelled the Small Farms Week Kickoff, which was scheduled for March 20, and Small Farms Week 2020, which was scheduled for March 22-28. 

We regret having to cancel what is always a fun and informative celebration of small farming in North Carolina, however, the health and safety of all North Carolinians must be our main concern. Registration payments will be refunded.

To all of you who have offered your time and your financial support to Small Farms Week, we thank you sincerely, and we hope to work with all of you next year.

A celebration of small-scale agriculture designed to help farmers thrive

Each year, Cooperative Extension at N.C. A&T celebrates the crucial role of small farmers in North Carolina’s $91.8 billion agriculture sector with Small Farms Week. First held in 1986, Small Farms Week includes workshops, tours, farming demonstrations and recognition of a Small Farmer of the Year. Small Farms Week is held in March and has focused on techniques to lengthen the growing season, pest management, safer and more sustainable practices, growing food without pesticides, urban horticulture, and more. The week culminates with a luncheon and talk by a speaker with connections to small agriculture.
