A Look into Frederick County Ag Week at the Mall 2019

Frederick County Ag Week at the Mall is coming to the Francis Scott Key Mall February 11-16 with lots of different agriculture activities for all to enjoy. Ag Week at the Mall was started over 45 years ago as a celebration of farming in the county, and today it continues as a way to promote agriculture and celebrate the year’s successes.

Farmers put in 365 days of hard work every year caring for the land and animals, and producing food for our communities. With over 181,000 acres of farmland Frederick County Agriculture has a market value of over $150 million.

If you have any questions about Ag Week at the Mall please contact OED’s Agriculture Business Development Specialist Katie Stevens at 301-600-3037 or kstevens1@frederickcountymd.gov.
