Farm City Week began in 1955 as a result of a conversation on a train between Charles Dana Bennett, a businessman from Vermont and Merle H Tucker Chairman of Kiwanis International Agriculture and Conservation Committee.
They wanted to find a way to increase respect for farming, awareness of our reliance on farm products and communication between urban and rural people. Catawba County has celebrated Farm-City Week for years as a partnership between The Kiwanis, Farm Bureau and Cooperative Extension.
