Grant Award: $3,500 – Greenhouse Vegetables
Maverick Farms is a 45 acre, second-generation family farm in Watauga County. With the WNC Ag Options Grant, a passive-solar greenhouse was constructed. The greenhouse will help the farm through the typical late-spring freezes and early fall frosts that occur in the High Country.
Maverick Farms is now entering their 4th season transitioning from a tobacco-based farm into a sustainable, community supported diversified vegetable enterprise.
