Nathaniel and his wife moved to Watauga County in 1998. They are interested in diversifying the production of their farm and exploring agritourism through their contacts in the Choose-N-Cut industry. The Maram’s plan is to propagate seeds of native plants to sell for landscaping purposes as plant stock.

Income would increase in years 3-5, due to the growth cycle of this project.

"We are interested in diversifying our production to reduce risk, increase on-farm income by producing a shorter term product, and to effectively use land that is not in production or not viable for production of traditional crops."
