Kevin Johnson, Wayne County Cooperative Extension Director, presented a proclamation to honor Farm-City Week in Wayne County to the Wayne County Commissioners. Johnson says, “Wayne County’s farm income makes a significant contribution to the economy of our county with over $450 million in gross farm gate sales during the last year.”
Wayne County is home to Mt. Olive Pickle, largest pickle company in the United States, and home to Goldsboro Milling Company, parent company of Butterball Turkey, the largest producer of Turkey products in the US.
Farm-City Week, November 16-23, 2022, provides an unparalleled experience for farm and city people to become better acquainted.
