$2,500 — Honey
Because of this grant “I will be able to increase honey production.” ~ James Parham
James Parham has expanded the production of his delicious mountain honey in addition to spending more time at regional festivals. Through greater production and exposure to local and visiting public the higher income will cover the costs of beekeeping maintenance.
Expected income totals $9,000 in next 2 years.
J. Parham has worked with his local NC Cooperative Extension Agents Christy Bredenkamp and Jeff Seiler from Swain County to produce and educate the public about honeys of our region.
