Choose and Cut
Grant Award: $6,000
Danny and his family are opening a choose-and-cut operation this year to sell trees that they started planting in 2004. They are building a wooden farm building for use as a gift sales shop, baked goods store and central location for customer interaction.
They are also purchasing a net baler, netting, wreath-making table and several marketing materials, including directional signs, a website and Longview Farm apparel.
The Millers offer hayrides on their scenic land to customers and school children, marketing the full “farm experience.” They operate a sixth generation farm.
