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.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
