Fruits & Vegetables; U-Pick Farm
“I have been involved in farming my entire life. I grew up with my grandfather as a farmer. I would love to continue the tradition with my family.” ~ Chad Calhoun
With the help of the grant, Chad Calhoun of Mitchell County is encouraging his family’s multi-generational tradition of farming to continue.
He is establishing a U-Pick strawberry operation with the assistance of his two daughters, since they are interested in growing the fruit. He is transitioning from growing tobacco, his major crop since 1993.
