$2,500 — Heirloom Tomatoes
Because of this grant “I will be able to expand my heirloom tomato product to meet increasing market demand.” ~ Richard Reece
Richard Reece is a full time farmer who has grown tobacco for several years. Richard is looking at increasing his income but shifting to heirloom tomato production in next year. He would like to transition completely out of tobacco and into commercial vegetable production.
Expected income from this project is $51,000.
Richard Reece has worked closely with his local extension agent Diane Ducharme, in Henderson County.
