Buy Haywood using YouTube to promote local agritourism

Written by 

Buy Haywood has gone high tech to help promote the county’s abundance of locally grown produce, flowers and food items, and handcrafted products. A YouTube video at www.youtube.com/use/BuyHaywoodProject gives viewers a sample of the various products they can buy that originate from Haywood County. The video is designed to help boost agritourism in Haywood County, according to Tina Masciarelli, Buy Haywood project coordinator. “Each product is a whole that makes up our vibrant community,” she said. Masciarelli is also working on a Haywood County Agritourism Guide (formerly known as the Farm Map & Brochure).  She is looking for Haywood County farms that accept visitors, value-added or specialty food retail stores that feature products with Haywood County grown ingredients, farm to fork restaurants that support local farmers consistently throughout the growing season by featuring Haywood County ingredients in their menu items, roadside stands that sell Haywood County grown products or other farming or agriculture related recreation and/or educational opportunities.
