The Friends of Agriculture Breakfast kicks off its season at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, November 15 at the Green Creek Community Center. This event is free and open to the public. Local farmers, growers, and other food producers provide fresh ingredients for a delicious complimentary country breakfast that will include local sausage, eggs, sweet potatoes, breads, jams and jellies, fresh greens, and locally roasted coffee.
This historic breakfast has been held for the past 12 years featuring speakers from many local farms and other agricultural experts in their field. It is the place to meet your neighbors and connect with community support agencies that are here to help us all maintain our beautiful, rural agricultural county.
The guest speaker will be Ben Barham, Emergency Program Specialist from the N.C. Dept of Agriculture and Consumer Science, Emergency Services Division. Mr. Barham will give an overview of how their division plans for, responds to, and recovers from emergencies that may impact the agriculture community of Polk County.
This event is held at the Green Creek Community Center (25 Shields Drive in Tryon). To be sustainable, please bring your coffee mug and plate. A complimentary breakfast will be served. Friends of Agriculture Breakfast is held on the third Wednesday of every month November through May. (Note: FOA in December will be held on the second Wednesday, the 13th).
