Meet your local farmer
The Haywood County Farm Bureau is sponsoring a dinner at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19 to allow consumers to meet farmers in the county.
The effort is part of the nationally recognized Farm-City Week across the United States. The events of the week are dedicated to recognizing agriculture’s impact on everyday life.
This years’ local Farm-City Week event “Meet Your Local Farmer” celebrates the coming together of the local farmer with urban residents.
“The public is encouraged to come and share a meal with and meet some of the folks that put food on our table. Farmers, cattlemen and others involved in our agriculture community will be here to meet you,” said Don Smart, president of the Haywood County Farm Bureau board of directors.
Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP by Friday, Nov. 16 be calling Karen Green at 452-1425.
