is a time to give thanks for the valuable partnerships between urban and rural residents. This year Farm Bureau members will mark the occasion with local events held throughout Florida, Nov. 15-22.
Farmers in Florida and across the country produce an abundance of safe, nutritious and affordable food supply. Their collaboration with grocers, truck drivers, processors, scientists and consumers play an important role in getting food from their fields to tables.
Farm-City Week highlights these relationships and provides farm families the opportunity to celebrate them while giving back to the community.
“Farm-City Week in a great opportunity for our farm families to commemorate the partnerships they have with various members of their communities and foster new relationships, too,” said Florida Farm Bureau Federation President Jeb S. Smith. “Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for our nation to express our gratitude to God for His provision and our farmers and ranchers for their sacrifice and hard work to provide a safe, affordable and abundant food supply for all.”
Many county Farm Bureau members will sponsor a variety of Farm-City Week events, including farm tours, luncheons, farm family recognitions, educational displays and student essay and poster contests.
