THANK YOU to every person who has participated in, supported, promoted, and volunteered in order to make the High Country Farm Tour successful!
We've hosted the Tour for six years, and this award would never be possible without all of your time, energy, and dedication to local and sustainable food and agriculture.
We know it's November, but this type of thing gets us excited for the first weekend August! See you then*
Thank you also to the Watauga County Cooperative Extension for hosting a wonderful Farm City Banquet this year, and congratulations to everyone who was acknowledged. Keep up the great work.
