Scott Boxberger, Stoney Hollow Farm
Farm Equipment and Expansion Project
Grant Award: $8,000
Stoney Hollow Farm has a well-established business, serving their community from the same location for over 20 years. They have a farm store and offer a CSA, and they also sell to local restaurants. With a recent change in Graham county alcohol laws, Scott anticipates an increase in tourism and he is ready to scale up his operation.
Scott plans to purchase a plastic mulch and drip tape layer which will save many hours of time as he currently lays plastic by hand. He also plans to double production of one of his areas with the purchase and installation of another drip irrigation system. He will also purchase metal conduit, pipe bending tools, and row cover fabric, which he will use to construct low tunnels. Scott anticipates this will allow him to double his winter production.
