The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Hopkins County has developed a series of educational programs to assist new landowners with the concept of agriculture production and rural living.
The New Landowner Seminar Series is designed with you in mind, providing opportunities to hear from leading experts and successful producers in the field of agriculture on what it takes to start, manage, and maintain your own agricultural enterprise and effectively manage your natural resources.
You will hear from AgriLife Extension Specialists, County Extension Agents, and others on concepts related to Soil Management, Pond Management, Honey Bees, Gardening and livestock and much more.
