Appleberry Cove Farm and School
Grant Award: $6,000 — Pure Dairy Goat Pet Milk
Sue is expanding the production, processing, packaging and marketing of goat milk for pet food under North Carolina milk for pet food use guidelines. She is also creating a pleasing and efficient production facility that may be used for farm tours both as a source of income and also as a form of advertising for the product.
Appleberry Cove is one of the first farms in Western North Carolina to move into full-time pet milk production that has been certified with the state under the new pet food license, tested product and approved label. Sue plans to market to pet owners and breeders interested in healthy local alternatives for their animals.
