Agriculture Initiatives

Howard County agriculture initiatives focus on four areas:

  • the coordination of various county agriculture programs
  • supporting projects that help local farms remain profitable
  • educating the community about the needs and challenges of farming operations
  • and ensuring thoughtful, supportive legislation is in place to govern property and farming rights

Agricultural Roundtable

County Executive Allan H. Kittleman holds an annual Agricultural Roundtable to discuss progress on agricultural priorities, outline upcoming initiatives and field questions from the farming community and others. 

The 2018 Roundtable was held February 15 at the Howard County Fairgrounds. See the video below.
