In January 2013 the WNC Agricultural Options program awarded 28 farmers grants totaling $148,500 to assist them in diversifying their farms.
Six of the farm businesses received $3,000, one received $4,500 and 21 received $6,000. Projects increase the economic sustainability of farm businesses as well as provide demonstration to other transitioning farmers.
