Please Join Us for Community Meetings on How to Increase Farmer Income in Yancey County

How can farmers make more money in Yancey County?

We want to hear your ideas! The Yancey County Ag Task Force is looking for projects to help farmers make more money, increase farm acreage, and build a stronger local food economy in our county. If you’re a Yancey County farmer looking to increase income from your farm, and/or grow your operation, we want to hear from you:

 Do you have access to enough land?

 What could help you produce more, or more cheaply?

 What could help you in marketing your products?

 And what could help you expand your operation?
