57th Watauga County Farm-City Banquet
The theme for the 2012 Farm City Banquet is “Local Farms Feed Local Families” as we are celebrating our locally produced farm products and farmers, food entrepreneurs, and supporters of local farms. Also this year we welcome distinguished guest speaker Denise Cerreta, the founder of One World Everybody Eats CafÃ©’s, which helped provide vision for the local F.A.R.M. CafÃ©. Following a local food supper, we will recognize individuals for their contributions and support of our local agricultural economy. We will also have door prizes that will be given out at the end of the celebration.
Each year the public are asked to nominate outstanding people that YOU know have made a positive impact on youth, agriculture, and our community. A list of awards and application forms can be downloaded here, from the Watauga Extension website http://watauga.ces.ncsu.edu, our blog http://wataugaces.blogspot.com or picked up from the Extension office at 971 West King Street in Boone. Completed applications can be mailed or dropped off to the Extension Center or e-mailed to Kathy_Lee@ncsu.edu by Friday, October 19, 2012.
