Who is My Farmer?


Agriculture and agribusiness represent the largest segment of our state’s economy, but most of our population is generations removed from the family farm. Food Dialogues: North Carolina educated consumers about where their food comes from, and the people who produce it. This panel focused on farming in North Carolina, why many farms look and operate much differently than they did just 30 years ago, and the complexity of the food production process. Panelists also answered questions regarding modern animal care practices, and the balance between responsible, environmentally friendly farming and our farmer’s efforts to feed your family and families around the world.
