Twelve Days Of Arkansas Agriculture


The Arkansas Agriculture Department is pleased to kick-off the Christmas holiday season with “Twelve Days of Arkansas Agriculture”, a new campaign with 12 stories that highlight some of the programs and services provided by the AAD that support our state’s agriculture industry.  The campaign theme is loosely based on the popular Christmas carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas” that highlights a series of gifts over 12 days during the Christmas season. 

Arkansas Secretary of Agriculture Wes Ward said “The Arkansas Agriculture Department exists to serve Arkansas agriculture, our state’s largest industry.   It’s an honor for us to administer the programs and services that assist and benefit Arkansas producers.  Our producers work tirelessly to feed, clothe, and shelter those here at home and across the globe and we take our obligations to them very seriously”.

The First Day of “The Twelve Days of Arkansas Agriculture” campaign features Poison Springs State Forest.  Poison Springs State Forest is a 23,506 acre demonstration forest for good forest management practices in western Ouachita and eastern Nevada counties.   The AAD’s Forestry Commission manages the Poison Springs State Forest for timber production, recreation, water quality protection, research, and wildlife habitat.  The AAD is honored to have a Christmas tree from Poison Springs State Forest at its headquarters building this holiday season.  This is the first time that the Agriculture Department has had an official Christmas tree.  Photos of the tree and employees throughout the Agriculture Department who helped decorate the tree can be found, here.
