Please join us for the 2015 Farm-City Week held at Brownwood, Saturday, November 21, 9:00AM. Farm-City Week has been held since the 1950s as a way to bridge the gap between the producers and consumers. Our agricultural enterprises are dependent on consumers and consumers are dependent on our agricultural products. We in the United States are blessed with an abundance of safe, healthy, and affordable food.
Sumter has a diverse economy in which agriculture plays a vital role. Over the past five years there has been a 63% increase in the number of farms in Sumter County. Within the County, there are 1,367 farms on over 183,000 acres that sell $42,066,000 worth of agricultural products. As with all other industries, agriculture is dynamic. Agriculture is constantly evolving to accommodate consumer preferences, conservation of natural resources, and scientific and technological advances. There is no better way for you, a decision-maker, to observe those changes than to be our honored guest at the 2015 Sumter County Farm-City Week Celebration.
The day will begin at the Brownwood Paddock Square, The Villages at 9:00 AM. Local farmer and State Senator, Wilton Simpson will be our keynote speaker. We will load the bus for a tour of local natural resource businesses at 10:45 AM. A delicious meal will be served at the Farmers Market Restaurant. We will arrive back in Brownwood at 4:00 PM.
