In this month of thanksgiving, it’s a great time to thank a farmer. To celebrate the importance of agriculture, Farm Town Week will be celebrated from November 17-24. The event has been held across the country since the 1950s to celebrate and promote agriculture – as well as beneficial partnerships between farmers and consumers.
This year, Sumter County Economic Development, the UF-IFAS extension and other community partners will present an in-person event at Whispering Oaks Winery on November 12. Activities will take place outside and include educational performances, lunch, and a winery tour.
The event, which will run from 11am-2pm, is free, but space is limited, so registration is required. For more information and to register, visit www.sumtercountyfl.gov/farmcity.
If you have questions related to the event, call Sumter County Economic Development at 4400-689-352.
