Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Rhonda Garrison to discuss “Today’s Topic.”
The Got to Be NC Festival makes its annual appearance at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh May 19-21. Admission and parking are free.
Several new attractions have been added to the festival’s annual celebration of N.C. agriculture:
The new features will fit right in with returning favorites, such as the Masons’ Pig Jig barbecue competition, which will again take place on Saturday, and one of the largest displays of antique tractors and farm equipment in the Southeast. In addition, there will be farm animals on display, including chickens, goats and longhorn steers.
The Homegrown Fare presented by Lowes Foods is also back, offering visitors the opportunity to sample and purchase good foods from about 100 North Carolina companies. There’s a $3 admission fee for the Homegrown Fare, but you can get two free tickets with a Lowes Foods loyalty card.
