Agri-Tourism: Horses

Johnny and Sharon Deyton have raised burley tobacco for over 40 years. Their interest in preserving their family heritage has inspired them to diversify the farm into agri-tourism.

With the WNC Ag Options Grant, the Deyton’s have purchased a Belgian horse to pull carriages and wagons, provide demonstrations and conduct educational farm tours.
