$2,500 — New Apple Varieties
Because of this grant “I am expanding my organic apple orchard production.” ~ Anthony Owens
A. Owens has inherited his family’s apple orchard and has grown apples for the past 14 years. With the grant money Anthony will purchase organic chemicals, packing supplies and digital weather station to increase the production and quality of his organic apples in the market.
Expected income from organic apple production in 2004, $11,000.
Anthony Owens is working closely with his NC Cooperative Extension Agent.
