Robert and Barbara Reece have grown tobacco in Avery County since 1979.
The Reece’s are slowing transitioning out of tobacco as they cut back on production and have been developing and implementing an agri-tourism operation on their farm to supplement lost tobacco income.
Through agri-tourism, the Reece’s hope to educate non-farm families on the importance of supporting family farms and help them create a better connection with nature.
