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

Southern Farm Network logoChristmas is one of Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler’s favorite holidays. And this week, he and Rhonda talk about the many North Carolina commodities that contribute to holiday feasts. Sweet potatoes, chicken, pork, beef, pickles, eggs, milk and bread are just a few of the North Carolina foods that find their way onto tables this time of year.

North Carolina has 52,000 farms producing food, fiber and economic activity for our state. Even in challenging economic times, Commissioner Troxler says, “that’s one thing you can count on — the farms and the farmers are going to be here.”

Listen as Commissioner Troxler and Rhonda talk about the holidays and the year ahead.
