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

Late summer and early fall is the heart of the agricultural fair season in North Carolina. The Drexel Community Fair is the first fair of the season, which ran Aug. 6-11, and the Cape Fear Fair ends the season Oct. 26-Nov.4. The department operates two agricultural fairs – the N.C. Mountain State Fair, Sept. 7-16, in Fletcher and the N.C. State Fair, which runs Oct. 11-21, in Raleigh. Agricultural fairs showcase the best of North Carolina and highlight agricultural contributions in their communities. You can find a list of county fairs and their dates at
