Matt Rhea: Cold Mountain Trout Company
“This grant is enabling me to open my farm to the public. It’s providing a venue so that the public can come and use my trout farm.” ~ Matt Rhea
Matt Rhea, owner of Cold Mountain Trout Company in Haywood County, is attracting visitors to his farm by constructing a demonstration stream, fishing area, hiking trail and picnic tables.
He is also creating educational opportunities, especially for school children. The additional agritourism income helps him recover from losses due to the drought of 2007.
