WASHINGTON, N.C. — This year, the 52nd annual “Blackland Farm Managers Tour” will be held on Wednesday, August 3rd in Beaufort County near Pantego, NC.
This is the largest event of its kind in North Carolina, and we expect more than 550 attendees this year. The event will offer an excellent opportunity to interact with farmers and agribusiness leaders from across the state and will include educational presentations on corn, soybean, and cotton production and management.
In addition, we will devote some time to the business side of agriculture, as we will have Jolene Brown presenting at one of the tour stops on the tour this year. Take a moment to view this video from Jolene as she describes what she will be talking about when she joins us on August 3rd. What she will say during her presentation could heavily impact you and your family as you transition your farm to future generations. Make plans to attend. You will not be disappointed!
The hosts for this year’s event will be Southland Farms and Howell Farms. If using GPS, please enter this address: 3385 Swindell Road, Pantego NC 27860. Registration begins at 7:00 AM with the tours starting at 8:00 AM. Lunch and remarks will begin around 12:30 PM.
