Ag Fair Season Underway

Fall is coming but the agricultural fairs season is already underway.  Several ag fairs are held in August, and fairs in Burke and Vance counties just wrapped up on Labor Day.

NC Ag Commissioner Steve Troxler says attending one of these fairs is a great way to learn about the region and if you miss the one in your county, chances are there’s another one in a county nearby coming up soon.

Commissioner Troxler says these fair play an important role in educating North Carolinians about agriculture.  They show our ag history, our present and our future.  And they really help people understand where our food comes from and why we should appreciate the hard work of our farming families.
