Haywood County farmers are offering a variety of products this holiday season, including standards such as Christmas trees and wreaths, as well as honey, poinsettias, jams and jellies, meats, cheeses and pickles.
“The holiday season provides another great opportunity to support Haywood County farmers,” said Anne Lancaster, project coordinator for the Buy Haywood program, which promotes high-quality farm products to community-minded consumers.
“Whether you are looking for gifts, food, or decorations, Haywood County has many great options, both at farms and at winter tailgate markets,” Lancaster said. “When you buy local products, you can prepare for the holidays and support local farms at the same time.”
The Buy Haywood project is managed by the Haywood County Economic Development Commission, and it receives support from the Haywood Advancement Foundation, the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project, Johnson’s Packing House, Bethel Rural Community Organization, Carolina Farm Credit, Boyd Mountain Christmas Tree Farm and other donors.
