$6,000 — Farm Stand

Loretta is building a farm stand on the Barnardsville Highway in Weaverville. At the retail store, she sells her greenhouse plants as well as locally grown and organic produce, meats, poultry, eggs and artisan cheese, and value-added products.

The building has a covered porch to give it a “country cottage” feel and attractive landscaping to create an inviting atmosphere. The store is open six days a week, and she has hired a part-time worker to assist with sales.
