New Map Leads the Way to Haywood County Farms
(Waynesville, NC – June 19, 2009) – Local residents and tourists have a new resource to help them support the farms and farmers of Haywood County. A new brochure and map lists more than 30 locations to buy local produce, plants, trout, and more. The featured sites include farm stands, tailgate markets, nurseries, and others. The brochure also lists farm-related events, such as the Canton Mater Fest. “Whether you are looking for fresh vegetables, a Christmas tree, or a day of fun for the whole family, this brochure will help you find your way,” said George Ivey, who coordinates the Buy Haywood project, which helps to promote local farm products.
The brochure is available at the Haywood County Visitor Centers in Balsam and Canton, the Haywood County Chamber of Commerce, and the Haywood County Cooperative Extension Office. You can also view and print a copy online here:
The brochure is a joint effort of the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project and Buy Haywood. Additional contributors include the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, the Haywood County Tourism Development Authority, the Golden LEAF Foundation, the Haywood County Economic Development Commission, and North Carolina Cooperative Extension.
