Central Park NC & STARworks Annual Gathering

Things are surely stirring in this melting pot of Montgomery County! Yesterday was a true testament that things are changing. STARworks hosted its Annual Gathering last night and it was a success, people from all over the state came to hear Joel Salatin and what is going on with the local food movement in North Carolina.
We had two of our farms on the panel, Whipowill Hill Farms and Hilltop Angus. They did an EXCELLENT job and we are so proud of them for representing this county!
Seeing the enthusiasm for this movement is enlightening and we believe that many positive things are going to start happening in this great state of North Carolina. Here is a great picture of our farms from last night's event.

Ag Heritage Day 2010

October 1 was Ag Heritage Day. Local 5th graders were in attendance and learned about their agricultural heritage past and present.   There were farm animals, agricultural equipment, pottery demonstrations and much more for the kids to enjoy. This event was sponsored by Farm Bureau and the Montgomery County Cooperative Extension Office was lucky enough to help out. Check out all the great pictures.!/album.php?aid=28956&id=117219574995061
