Support your local farms this winter

Written by 

Harvests of sweet corn, tomatoes, and other produce wrapped up weeks ago, but Haywood County farmers still have plenty to offer this holiday season — everything from Christmas trees and wreaths to smoked trout and other meats.

“Many shoppers connected with local farms and farmers last holiday season,” said Anne Lancaster, project assistant for the Buy Haywood program, which promotes high-quality farm products to community-minded consumers. “This year, we are featuring even more ways for local residents and visitors to get ready for the holidays right here in Haywood County.”

Other Haywood County farm products available this holiday season include poinsettias, honey, smoked tomato jam, and tomato sauces. For more details about these products, as well as retail purchase information, shoppers can go online to www.buyhaywood.com/listings.

The Buy Haywood project is managed by the Haywood County Economic Development Commission, and it receives support from the Golden LEAF Foundation, Haywood Advancement Foundation, Johnson’s Packing House, Haywood County TDA, Bethel Rural Community Organization, and the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project.
