Southwestern NC RC&D Council will be hosting our Second Annual Farm Services Expo on December 7th, 2017. The Expo will be held in the Enloe Building at the Tri-County Community College in Murphy, NC from 9:00 am-3:30 pm. The purpose of this event is to provide information to farmers as well as the public about the services provided by farm service providers in Clay, Cherokee, and Graham County. Farms from each of these counties will be featured which have benefitted from services provided by these agencies.

In addition, there will be three speakers as listed below:

  • Low Tech Oyster Mushroom Production on Pasteurized Straw: Asheville Fungi- Chris Parker
  • Meat Goat Production: NCSU Cooperative Extension Graham County Director- Randy Collins
  • Backyard Poultry: NCSU Cooperative Extension Wilkes County Area Specialized Agent, Agribusiness-Poultry-Lauren Greene

Last year’s Expo was very successful; however, we aim to make this year’s bigger and better! This is a no cost Expo and lunch is included. It is our way of thanking our area farmers and service providers for all their hard work.

If you are interested in attending our event, please RSVP with Christina Newhouse by phone: (828) 361-2266 or by email: cnewhouse@southwesternrcd.org.
