Rebecca Daniels lives on her Avery County family farm, a third-generation fraser fir and sheep farm. She is working with her son, Logan Burleson, 16, to establish a greenhouse operation, primarily for rooted wine grape cuttings.

They plan to sell to wine grape growers across the region. Logan’s aim is to work in agriculture and create a self-sustainable farm.

"The grant enabled us to have a greenhouse. We can keep farming by creating a sustainable venture." Logan said.
