Dear Nahid,

Thank you to everyone who attended, presented, sponsored, and exhibited at this year’s Sustainable Agriculture Conference! The overwhelming turnout and support is a testament to the strength and dedication our sustainable farming community has here in the Carolinas. While this year’s conference looked vastly different than years past, we were all still able to come together to learn, network, and share a few laughs.

Another way we can all support our farming community is by filling our Thanksgiving tables with food locally grown and raised. If you still haven’t bought your turkey, you can still Find Your 2020 Pasture-Raised Thanksgiving Turkey from a Local Farm. I can’t wait to enjoy my locally-raised turkey and am thankful to the farmers, ranchers, and their workers who have overcome immense obstacles this year to provide the food for which my family will celebrate and give thanks. Happy Thanksgiving!
