Small Farms Week

Each year, Small Farms Week highlights the programs and activities conducted by  Cooperative Extension at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University that support limited resource, small-scale, part-time and alternative-enterprise farmers.

Small Farms Week 2023 honors the small-scale growers who put food on our tables

Our 37th annual Small Farms week celebration runs from March 27 to 31 in person on the campus of N.C. A&T State University, with a kickoff in Robeson County at the farm of Millard and Connie Locklear.
