Cullman County Farm-City Tour

Agriculture: Stewards of a Healthy Planet

Come join us on October 27th for a tour of a special community - Cullman County

The message our local Farm City Committee wants to communicate through this tour is a greater understanding of how food, fiber and renewable resource products are made, and through that understanding, build a growing appreciation for the contributions of Cullman County forestry and agriculture as a:

• source for safe, abundant and affordable products

• positive force in the local, national and global economy

• vital part of meeting the growing global challenge of hunger

We will head over to Camp Meadowbrook’s beautiful new facility for lunch and a tour of the Soil and Water Conservation’s “agritainment” trailer they are using to teach school children the value of conservation and agriculture. Our last stop will be Simcoe Wood Products to tour their facility.
