2018 BFMA Summer Farm Tour
This year, our 48th annual “Blackland Farm Managers Tour” will be held on Wednesday, August 1 in Pinetown, NC.

This is the largest event of its kind in North Carolina, and we expect more than 550 attendees this year. The event will include educational presentations from North Carolina State University Extension and Research faculty members on corn and soybean production and management. The event also offers an excellent opportunity to interact with farmers and agribusiness leaders from across the state.

The hosts for this year’s event will be 3B Farms and Foxfire Farms. The physical location for the event will be the 3B Farms Shop located at 2200 Respess Road, Pinetown, NC. Registration begins at 7:00am with opening remarks at 8:00am. The educational portion of the event will conclude around 2:00pm, followed by an antique farm equipment “Plow Day”. A catered lunch will be served at noon, with Dr. Fred Below, Professor of Plant Physiology at the University of Illinois as our special guest.

Each year we ask our industry partners to support this event. For those who have helped in the past, we thank you and hope that we can count on you again this year.
