Grants to help farmers put out new roots

Written by 

Farmers in Western North Carolina can tap $3,000 to $6,000 grants from the N.C. Tobacco Trust Fund Commission to help farmers branch out to new crops.

WNC AgOptions seed money offsets the risk of trying something new and gives farmers the chance to demonstrate new farming techniques and marketing tactics to the agricultural community.

The deadline is Nov. 16. Contact your local Cooperative Extension agents by Oct. 12 to express their intent to apply. There is one remaining informational session on the grant cycle being held from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Swain Extension Center.
