Frederick County Ag Week at the Mall-2018

Frederick County Ag Week at the Mall is coming to the Francis Scott Key Mall February 12-17 with lots of different agriculture activities for all to enjoy. Frederick County Ag Week at the Mall was started over 44 years ago as a celebration of farming in the county, and has continued ever since. Ag Week 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 dollars.
