Tour Jackson County farms, support local farmers

Written by 

A locally produced summer brunch will be provided by the Jackson County Farmers Market at 11 a.m. on June 26. A tour of three Cullowhee farms will follow the brunch.

The farms available for touring are: Full Spectrum Farms, a 34-acre farm on a mission to serve adults on the autism spectrum; Avant Garden Farm and Venue, a small farm focused on sustainability; and Registered Nursery, a Caney Fork flower garden with select perennials, herbs and lilac bushes.

Ticket prices for the brunch include a buffet prepared by professional chef Chris Dole, beverages, tax, gratuity and farm tour for $40. Tickets are sold at the farmers market or online. Tickets are also available for the farm tour portion only for $10 per car. Proceeds benefit the farmer’s market.

From craft artisans to world-class musicians, stealthy moonshiners to stoic veterans, backwoods folks and cosmopolitan socialites — they’re all here in Southern Appalachia.
