NCDA&CS Taking Preventive Measures to Help Farmers and Agribusinesses

The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) is taking preventive measures in the event that the state issues a shelter-in-place order to help farmers and agribusinesses. Please see the two linked documents below and share with your farmers, agribusinesses, commodity partners and other pertinent contacts.

The following documents are to be used as a notification method to notify law enforcement or anyone else that people carrying them are involved in the critical and essential industry of agriculture. Again, these documents should be distributed to farms, agribusinesses and industry partners.

To reiterate, these resources are to keep North Carolina’s agribusiness industry flowing if there is an executive order further restricting movement in the state or to use at the local level. Thank you for your ongoing support of N.C. agriculture.
