Are you interested in joining a very diverse, dynamic group of farm women who meet monthly to discuss issues that affect women in agriculture? Then, attend their informal meetings that typically meets the first Wednesday of each month at Johnny Bull’s restaurant in Louisburg from 12 noon – 2 p.m. Lunch is “Dutch.”

The next meeting will be a “Lunch & Learn” on Wednesday, June 6th at Johnny Bull’s Restaurant in Louisburg. Ms. Sarah Bostick of Carolina Farm Stewardship will attend and speak on marketing your produce locally and help answer questions regarding your compliance with the recently passed national Food Safety Modernization Act. She will also address post-harvest handling of produce at Farmers Markets and other sites.

If you plan to attend, contact Franklin County Cooperative Extension at 919-496-3344 to register or for more information, email martha_mobley@ncsu.edu.
