North Carolina farmers work tirelessly to produce an abundance of food and are served by a variety of businesses in our community. This year’s local Farm City celebration organized by N.C. Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center will take place on November 5 & 6, 2018, and includes a bus tour to NC State University, local tours to area farms and businesses, an information fair, and a banquet.
