$2,500 — Corn Maze
Because of this grant “Our family will have income during the time of year which this farm usually has none.” ~ Waightstill Avery
W. Avery owns a large Christmas tree farm that offers choose and cut from November to January. With the help of their local extension agent, W. Avery’s family will create a 3-4 acre corn maze marketed at new and existing clients for the choose and cut Christmas tree operation.
Expected income from 5,000 visitors in 2004 will be $20,000.
Waightstill Avery has worked closely with his local NC Cooperative Extension Agent, Jerry Moody in Avery County.
