Through the end of May 2020, we will be focusing on a different commodity and/or service grown or offered in Lee County and across Central North Carolina. Topics will include: Visit NC Farms App and Farmers Markets, Strawberries, Ornamentals/Nursery Operations, Spring/Summer Produce, and Blueberries.

Our goal is to let consumers know as an essential industry our farms are “open for business” and the products they produce are fresh, local, and safe for consumption.

We’ll also be highlighting the “Visit NC Farms” App in each segment, as this tool is becoming increasingly important during COVID-19 as consumers are looking at more local options. Push notifications on the App have been very active with many farms and nurseries going to on-line ordering and delivery services with products like eggs, meat, strawberries, cool-season vegetables, and ornamental flowers in high demand.

Our weekly content will consist of a short video on each commodity/service along with some supplemental pieces that cover healthy recipes or additional ways to utilize and enjoy the particular product highlighted.

We look forward to sharing this content and hope you will post on your social media and pass along through your networks in an effort to promote agriculture in our region.

You can also keep up with the series on Facebook and be on the lookout for the #stillgrowingleeco.
