To celebrate the connections between rural and urban communities, Vance County will commemorate Farm City Week with TWO “don’t miss” events on November 15, 2022. Our Farm City events will take place at the Vance County Regional Farmers Market, details below:

  • Luncheon Celebration– Starting at noon, the luncheon will feature a special presentation by Jake Parker, Legislative Counsel & State Legislative Director for North Carolina Farm Bureau. He will discuss the important work that NC Farm Bureau does on behalf of farmers, as well as some of the big issues facing agriculture in the future. Space is limited and registration is required. Register for the luncheon on-line, or call 252-438-8188.
  • Drones on the Farm: An introduction to UAVs in Ag – This hands-on workshop will start at 2 p.m. and is presented by the Vance County 4-H “Tech Changemakers” program, which empowers teens to lead digital skills training. Participants will learn about how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (a.k.a. drones) can be a valuable tool on the farm, the regulations around their use, and the basics of how to fly them. Space is limited and registration is required. Register on-line for Drones on the Farm, or call 252-438-8188.

These special events are being offered thanks to the support of Vance County Farm Bureau.
