Lexington County Farm-City

to strengthen the understanding of farm-city connections that provide food, fiber, and shelter.

Welcome to Lexington County Farm-City!

Lexington County Farm-City programs tell the story of rural-urban interdependence in the food and fiber system. Farm-City develops programs that bring farmers and non-farmers together and fosters a greater understanding between rural and urban communities. The members of the Lexington County Farm-City Committee believe that by sharing common values we can increase opportunities for the community. Our goal is to make a difference, individually and collectively, in our community. If you would like more information about how you can make a difference, contact a Lexington County Farm-City Committee member near you.
