Today’s Topic: ‘Farm Fresh Family Day’ at N.C. Museum of History

by | Sep 22, 2009

Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with the Southern Farm Network’s Rhonda Garrison to discuss “Today’s Topic.”


“Farm Fresh Family Day” is coming to the N.C. Museum of History in downtown Raleigh on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will bring a lot of farm-related activities to the city and offer something for all ages. You can take a hayride, churn butter, go on a scavenger hunt, see antique farm equipment, watch cooking demonstrations, and a lot more. Admission and parking are free.

Agriculture is a $70 billion industry in North Carolina, but a lot of residents don’t have a connection to farming anymore, Troxler says. Events such as “Farm Fresh Family Day” help educate people about agriculture’s importance to the state.

Listen to Commissioner Troxler and Rhonda Garrison discuss this event.
