The Select Board established the Ag Committee in 2006 to serve as a forum for matters of interest to farmers in Concord, and to advise the Board on how the Town can best support farming in Concord. The committee's five members include three Concord residents who are engaged in farming and two citizens at-large interested in promoting farming. The committee meets monthly, usually on the second Thursday. All are welcome.

In 2016, the Concord Agriculture Committee and The Umbrella Arts and Environment Program collaborated on a year-long project, pairing 11 artists with 13 Concord farms and exhibiting the results in “Art & Agriculture: Four Seasons on Concord Farms” at the Umbrella Gallery last fall.
This fall six of the original artists--Lois Andersen (Rotondo Farm), Robert Bicknell (Kenney Farm), Lonnie Harvey (Hutchins Farm), Meg Birnbaum (Pete & Jen's Backyard Birds), Carrie Nixon (Saltbox Farm), and James Zall (Marshall Farm)--will be exhibiting their work at the Harvey Wheeler Community Center in West Concord. Be sure to see their exploration of the people and work of Concord farms through four successive seasons.
