The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund officials have asked the NCSBA to forward information concerning the fund and how to submit an application to the members of the NCSBA.
Information has been posted at www.ncbeekeepers.org and the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association Facebook page. Interested persons should read this information in its entirety and email any questions to the Born and Bred Program chairman Paul Newbold at email@example.com
