Farm Family of the Day

Has your farm family got what it takes to be one of the 11 families recognized at the N.C. State Fair as its Farm Family of the Day?

 

If you are proud to be a N.C. farmer, work hard to contribute to the state’s No. 1 industry and love farming and the N.C. State Fair, you could be one of the lucky ones selected.

 

The Farm Family of the Day is sponsored by Tractor Supply Company and seeks to recognize and celebrate the state’s rich agricultural heritage and many farm families that are behind the state’s $95.9 billion agriculture and agribusiness industry.

 

“The State Fair’s earliest beginnings sought to elevate the understanding of new agricultural practices and technology. Today, one of agriculture’s biggest challenges is helping people make the connection between farming and the food they enjoy,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “Farm families tell that story the best because they are out there every day working hard to grow the food, fiber and fuel we need. We are looking forward to recognizing them at the State Fair.”

 

Families recognized as Farm Family of the Day honorees will be awarded an N.C. State Fair prize pack including fair tickets to use on any day of their choice during the 2022 N.C. State Fair as well as a gift package from Tractor Supply Company.
