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 on the Lexington County Farm-City programs, contact a committee member near you.
