Ted Farmer

Nature Trails
Grant Award: $3,500 Grant


Ted Farmer was born on the same farm where he currently lives and works raising Fraser Fir Christmas Trees. Ted’s father before him moved to their family farm in Avery County over 90 years ago.

Ted’s great interest in nature inspired him to improve an existing nature trail along his property in hopes that he will be able to educate others on wildlife and farming co-existing together.

With the WNC Ag Options grant, the Farmer’s installed a parking area for farm guests and updated the interpretive nature trail.
