Farm-City Logo with farmland illustration above urban illustrationIt’s that time of the year! The 67th annual Farm City Banquet will be held Thursday, Nov. 9th at 6:00 p.m. at Boone United Methodist Church.

This year, Lee Rankin from Apple Hill Farm will present part of her story from her soon-to-be-released memoir, “Farm Family.” Dinner will be supplied from local farms and prepared by Daniel Brown from Browns Farm Ridge and Asa Nelson and his gang will be pickin’ and grinnin’ some bluegrass favorites.

Awards will then be presented to those in the county’s farming, civic and business communities who have made significant contributions to the local agricultural economy. Commodity groups also will award their respective producers of the year, and the Watauga Soil and Water District will present the Farm Family of the Year award. The Boone Chamber of Commerce also will present the “Tuckwiller Award” to recognize achievements in Community Development in memory of the late Lake Ernest Tuckwiller, past Watauga County Farm Agent.

Door prizes of baskets full of locally produced foods and goods will be drawn from ticket stubs. The Watauga County Farm Bureau is the Platinum Sponsor this year. Gold sponsors are New River Building Supply, Southern Ag, Hollar & Greene Produce, Carolina Farm Credit, Blue Ridge RC&D and PHARMN. Please call 828-264-3061 with further questions.

Tickets for the local food dinner are $10, children 6-12, $5, and children 5 and under eat for free. Tickets must be purchased in advance (cash or check), as they will not be sold at the door and only 200 seats are available.

Get your tickets at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Watauga County Center at 971 W. King St.
