Not only is today the first day of spring, it’s also National Ag Day.

In Chenango County, Ag Day will be celebrated with a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. today at the Silo restaurant in Greene.

The day marks the 40th anniversary of National Ag Day, which is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country.

This year’s theme is “Generations Nourishing Generations“ with a presentation by NY FFA state secretary Leanne. M Greene. Ag day encourages every American to understand how food products are produced, value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy and the consideration of career opportunities in agriculture related fields.
