The Houston County Commission is giving farmers some extra recognition.
The commission approved “National Farm City Week” today.
It will be the week of Thanksgiving, running Monday, November 25th to Friday, November 29th. The goal this year is to celebrate the economic impact of farming and agriculture on our nation. According to the Alabama Peanut Producers Association, in Alabama alone, farming brings in $1.8 billion dollars each year and creates about 50,000 jobs.
