Haywood County’s ‘Homegrown Picks’ for 2014

Written by 

The Haywood County Tourism Development Authority has announced its “Homegrown Picks” for 2014.

Buy Haywood, is the only county-specific agritourism initiative in Western North Carolina and works diligently to introduce high-quality farm products to community-minded consumers. Each year Buy Haywood creates and distributes a free Agritourism Guide of working farms, produce stands, markets, and activities. www.buyhaywood.com.

A growing project of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, the Blue Ridge Music Trails guide travelers to the many public settings in which original mountain folk music and dance thrive today. The trail makes it easy to find authentic regional folk music, meet musicians, see traditional dancing, and in many cases take part in the festivities for a first-hand experience of the area’s rich music heritage. www.blueridgemusic.org.

After much planning and developing, the Haywood County Film Commission has officially been revived, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Haywood County TDA and Advantage West. The TDA is currently working with Advantage West in Asheville, who has been supplying information on Haywood County when presented with location requests for TV and film. www.haywoodcountytourismdevelopment.com.

The Haywood County Quilt Trails project helps the area tell its history by featuring colorful and meaningful quilt squares installed on barns, public buildings, and shops. Quilts represent a much-loved symbol of comfort, family, and heritage, which make the squares a perfect way to tell the story of Haywood County. www.haywoodquilttrails.org.

    art theplaceClaire Lynch likes to blur lines.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
