Agriculture and Food Distribution Transit Letter

— Written By

Below you will find a link taking you to the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Agriculture and Food Distribution employee letter. This letter can be signed by you if you are the farm owner and carried with you as you travel while conducting farm and food business. The world of farming is evolving daily and we thank you for your dedication to feeding our communities during this ever-changing time.

The NCDA&CS is taking steps to help farmers and agribusinesses during the shelter-in-place order. Please see the linked document below and share with your farmers, agribusinesses, commodity partners and other pertinent contacts.
The following document is 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.
