Celebration honors farming in Cabarrus

On this week's CTW...

AgCele48-13.jpgAug. 5, 2013 – Hidden from the road, tucked away on 300 acres of land in Concord, we visit The Farm at Brusharbor today for the 8th Annual Agricultural Celebration. This working cattle farm is an appropriate site for this yearly event recognizing the importance of farming and the agricultural industry in Cabarrus County. Amid ponds, pastures, a rustic red barn and panoramic views of farmland are discussions among local farmers and elected officials about progress, trends and needs in Cabarrus and beyond.

The Farm at Brusharbor isAgCele28-13.jpg a new location for the Agricultural Celebration, which is held each July or August. This year’s 8th gathering was hosted July 30 and included a donated dinner as well as commentary from state and local representatives.
AgCele38-13.jpgSince 2005, the annual celebration has brought together regional farmers with officials, Cabarrus County staffers, members of the volunteer-based Cabarrus County Agricultural Advisory Board and interested guests for the purposes of conversation and education. In years past, the festivity’s discussion with state government representatives has led to positive changes for local farming and production.
Alongside the Cabarrus County Agricultural Advisory Board, the evening is annuaAgCele18-13.pnglly organized by Cabarrus County and North Carolina Cooperative Extension’s Cabarrus County Center.
