Brunswick County’s economy and culture has been historically centered around agriculture. Even after decades of rapid growth, agriculture continues to thrive and provide a strong positive influence on the local economy and culture in Brunswick County and throughout the Cape Fear Region. The Brunswick County Agricultural Development Plan was created to help agriculture continue to thrive as Brunswick County continues to experience growth and development. This plan looks at the current status of agriculture in Brunswick County by examining data, threats, funding opportunities, and programming. The plan includes recommended goals & strategies for enhancing Brunswick County Agriculture.
The Brunswick County Agricultural Development Plan is was an initiative completed through a joint partnership between the Brunswick County Soil & Water Conservation District, the Brunswick County Cooperative Extension, and the Brunswick County Planning Department and in conjunction with the local agriculture community and the Brunswick County Voluntary District Board (VAD). This initiative was completed and drafted in-house by Brunswick County team members. A committee was formed from the local agriculture community to help guide the initiative.
