Yancey grown logo with mountains, fields and riverIt has been several years since N.C. Cooperative Extension of Yancey County released the “Yancey Grown” website. The purpose of this site was to highlight agricultural production in Yancey County, and to connect farmers with potential markets or customers. Over the years, the website has not been maintained and the information included on the website has become dated. N.C. Cooperative Extension of Yancey County is currently working to create a new version of Yancey Grown, and turn it into a resource that will benefit Yancey County farmers. However, we need your help!

How Yancey Grown Will Recognize, Market, Promote, and Otherwise Benefit Your Farm!

We hope that Yancey Grown will become a central location to link the public to Yancey County Agriculture. We hope to design the website so that it will benefit farmers as follows:

  1. Provide benefit to those farmers that are retailing farm product or experiences (i.e. agri-tourism) to the public.
  2. Connect Yancey County farmers that are wholesaling product to wholesale marketing outlets
  3. Connect resources and farm suppliers to farmers in the county

A lot has changed since Yancey Grown first came online. In recent years, social media has greatly changed how goods are marketed. Websites are no longer just to share information about a farm. Some farms may utilize a website in an online store format to market products.

If your farm utilizes social media for promotion or online marketing resources, we hope to update Yancey Grown so that it will help promote your social media or online presence. It is our hope that Yancey Grown can be shared throughout the community in a variety of ways such as through Tourism, to new residents, perhaps to visitors utilizing the many local “Air B&Bs”, or the website might even be shared with wholesalers looking for local farm products.

We also hope that farm suppliers such as feed stores, farm equipment mechanics, or other small businesses that focus upon farmers will allow us to highlight them so that we can direct new and beginning farmers to Yancey Grown as a resource.

We Need Your Help!

We cannot promote your farm or agri-business if we are not aware of you, and if we do not have updated information about your farm or agri-business. If you would like to have your farm or business marketed at no cost through our Yancey Grown updated website, we would like to invite you to complete our Yancey Grown Farm/Agri-business application. Please note: Only farms or agri-businesses located within Yancey County will be promoted on the Yancey Grown website.

If you would like more information about the “Yancey Grown” project, please contact the Extension Agent for Agriculture with N.C. Cooperative Extension of Yancey County, David Davis ( by email or by calling (828) 682-6186.
