Summer is outdoor celebration time. People are looking forward to barbecues with beef, pork and chicken and with corn, potatoes and beans. And, what’s a barbecue without watermelons and a freezer of fresh peach ice cream

The Pike County Farm-City Committee focuses on the relationship between the farm and urban communities and how they work together to feed homefolks, America and places beyond.

The committee welcomes nominations from those among us who recognize and appreciate the efforts of friends and neighbors who help feed “the world.”
